Creation of contemporary objects inspired by the traditions of Québec’s First Nations and Inuit

Come and discover the beauty of the objects made and used by Québec’s Aboriginal peoples. A showcase for Aboriginal knowledge, the First Nations Garden features a fascinating collection of contemporary objects that draw on tradition while combining past and present.

Aboriginal design showcased in the First Nations Garden

Birch and black ash bark, spruce and fir roots and caribou hide have been used for millennia by Québec’s First Nations and Inuit. Discover the ingenuity of Aboriginal design; the clean lines and economical use of materials in the realization of these useful artistic objects. Admire the bark canoe, baskets, baby carrier and several other creations on display right in the natural setting of the Botanical Garden.

A unique way of exhibiting these items so intimately connected to their territories — the deciduous and coniferous forests and the tundra!
