A garden devoted to Amerindians and InuitThe First Nations Garden is a tribute to the close bonds that Native people in Quebec have always
maintained with "Mother Earth". Rather than presenting each nation individually, the Garden highlights the common traits they share. The space is divided into three main zones, each one associated with a particular lifestyle.
- THE CONIFER FOREST is the domain of nomadic Algonquian nations, including the Innu, Attikamek, Cree, Algonquin and Naskapi - traditional hunters, fishers and gatherers.
- THE HARDWOOD FOREST is the territory of the First Nations of southern Quebec, most of them Iroquoian (Mohawk and Huron-Wendat) and skilled farmers, along with a few Algonquian
nations (Abenaki, Malecite and Micmac).
- THE NORTHERN TERRITORY is the land of the Inuit and a number of nomadic nations.
