Presentation

Welcome to the Musée des Abénakis ! Founded in 1965 by the Abenaki community and housed in the former Odanak Catholic school, on the banks of the Saint-François River, this is the oldest Aboriginal Museum in Quebec. It's also your chance to explore the many facets of the rich and authentic material and intangible heritage of the Abenaki First Nation, and learn about its thousands of years of history.
