The Rhythm of Native Music and Dances

Our young visitors experience an unforgettable moment by entering the colorful universe of the Native dances and costumes. They also have the possibility to be initiated to music instruments such as tam-tam, rattle or flute.

Afterwards they participate in spiritual ceremonies formerly practiced by the Huron and they also hear the fascinating legend of the big snake Kabir Kouba. At the end of this program, we invite our young visitors to participate at the friendship dance with our dancers who will teach them how to execute the simple step and the horse step.
