  The Huron-Wendat lived in the vast lands and forests known now as the Quebec and Ontario provinces. About 300 of them, who at a time were more than 22 000, came from Ontario to establish themselves near the waterfall they named Kabir Kouba in 1697 : the village was called Jeune-Lorette and was located next to Quebec city.

  Renowned for their negociating, artistic and commercial skills, they became a modern native community which will be happy to welcome you at Maison Aroüanne. There, you'll be offered guided tours to the historic village and chapel. Also, it is possible, upon request, to participate in animated work-shops where you produce a traditionnal native object while exchanging with some young Huron-Wendat on ancient and modern topics.

Kabir-Kouba  

  Wendake, a self-governing territory in the midst of Quebec City. Wendake is home to a thriving community of artists and artisans. Local galleries and arts and crafts shops feature a broad range of traditional and contemporary creations.

  Only 15 minutes from downtown Québec City, Wendake will dazzle you with the richness of its culture, the warmth of its people, and the beauty of its natural surroundings. A wealth of available activities make it a great winter destination too.

Magnificent Kabir Kouba Falls plunges through a canyon right next to the town. Measuring 28 meters, the Kabir Kouba Fall plunges into a 42 meters deep canyon.

Discover the guided tours offered by the Huron-Wendat Museum and the Centre d'interpretation de la chute Kabir Kouba.
