The Atikamekw people offer several workshops for deepening your knowledge and understanding of the Atikamekw nation, providing you with the opportunity to learn about the rich history, heritage, and cultural inheritance of the Atikamekw people. Workshops are offered on the traditional language of the Atikamekw and the legends that are foundational to the culture and the region.
The Atikamekw people have preserved the ancient knowledge of feeding and healing from nature without altering it significantly. They offer you a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn from this rich heritage about plants that grow throughout Quebec. A workshop on traditional music will introduce you to the Atikamekw sound and techniques. A workshop on the traditional craftwork of the people is also offered, exploring the various kinds of birch bark craft – from baskets to canoes – made using the traditional techniques of the Aktikamekw people.
Crafts and art from locals are also available for viewing and purchase in the Manawan Tourism center.
