Huron-Wendat culture under the stars

The Onhwa ‘Lumina Enchanted Night Course was launched ahead of several curious visitors gathered in the woods on Tuesday night in Wendake.

The creative director was very proud of the response so far.

“We have some really nice comments. It’s very exciting. There is a feeling of well-being. It’s a cozy atmosphere, “explains Marie Belzile of the productive entertainment studio Moment Factory.

In seven zones, participants on this first evening were immersed in a stunning universe that uses technology to revive Huron-Wendat culture through its myths, rituals, and traditions.

“We imagine a path in the woods, at night, lined with lights and where the forest comes to life through sound and music,” adds Marie Belzile.

Onhwa Huron-Wendat means “now,” so the idea of ​​a bridge between the past and the present arose.

Onhwa ‘Lumina aims to quickly become the Capitale-Nationale’s main tourist attraction.

Members of the Huron-Wendat Nation contributed to the project at all stages of the design.

As soon as the night comes, the 50-minute experience includes a 1.2 km hiking trail in the woods of Saint-Rémy, near the Complexe sportif Desjardins de Wendake.
