KWE! Meet with Indigenous Peoples is a welcoming event hosting plenty of activities to highlight the 11 Indigenous Nations present in Quebec. “KWE” which means “hello” is not only an invitation to meet, but also a chance for different cultures to come closer together. This event takes place in Quebec City, from June 17 to 21 at Place Jean-Béliveau. This 5th edition will feature a program full of cultural and culinary activities, exhibitions, and musical performances. For beautiful encounters and unforgettable moments with family and friends!

See a brand-new exhibition of traditional dwellings

This year, KWE has reinvented itself and invites you to learn about ancestral ways of life. Architecture and the construction of certain dwellings are explored in an immersive ambience. A visit to this exhibition is also a way to discover artisans, cultural and artistic works as well as the kinds of tools that are used, all presented with authentic sets and sounds.

Enjoy family activities

KWE! is also a wonderful opportunity for visitors of all ages to let their creativity run wild by participating in workshops on traditional objects, such as dream catchers, and to learn about the arts, cultures and traditions of the First Nations and Inuit. And kids are sure to love the fun and entertaining face-painting activity!

Charming culinary activities and many other festivities

Calling all foodies: there’s a memorable and delectable component of the KWE! event just for you! Get ready for cooking and baking demonstrations of contemporary and traditional dishes. There will also be tastings and boxes ($) of ingredients to prepare Indigenous dishes with a choice of three themes: gathering, hunting, fishing.

But that's not all you can do at KWE! Films, discussions on myths and realities, dancing and music will also be featured, not to mention the famous walk with Dr. Stanley Vollant, the official spokesperson of the event. Check out the program to find out more!
