An authentic People

For an unbelievable visit that allows for a deep communion with nature while illuminating the native way of life, visitors to Lanaudière come to the Atikamekw community in Manawan. Centuries ago, this First nations group made their home near Lac Kempt north of Saint-Michel-des-Saints, in the heart of a stunning natural setting. At this unforgettable destination, you’ll stay in a teepee, learn about aboriginal traditions and how to speak the Atikamekw language, take a workshop on building birch bark canoes, or canoe down river before eating the catch of the day. Promoting sustainable tourism, this memorable site provides an eye-opening journey to simpler living and a unique culture.
