Our natives and their culture should be part of your experience when you visit Ontario. That does not mean that you should go in one of the souvenir shops and purchase something which looks "Indian" to you.
You should actually meet these people and talk to them. I recommend that you go on the Internet first to familiarize yourself a little bit with their religion, their customs, their history and very important how you should behave when you go to one of their events such as Pow Wow.
Ohsweken and its surroundings on the Grand River is one of the larger reservations in southern Ontario. You will find there also an information center. Please visit our web site which you will find in the region "Festival Country"
In Ohsweken you will also find a store which sells art, clothing, jewelry and many other things made by the natives. We purchased several times there moccasins as gifts.
"IROQRAFTS", a store in Ohsweken which offers a wide variety of native made articles
If you visit a Pow Woe it should be preferable during nice weather.
I did not have this luck during when I attended a Pow Wow in Fort Erie. We had heavy rain and the event was moved on short notice to the indoors of the local native center.
Please use the link to our web site about this Pow Wow. You will find there also a video.
I still liked it
That what I expected
Ask also for a "Drum Night". We had participated in a few of them. They are not meant as a tourist attraction and are not advertised.
To learn more about a "Drum Night" use the link to our web site.
Most participants come in normal clothes
In Midland we recommend a visit of the re-build mission station of French Jesuits called "Sainte-Marie among the Hurons".
Check out our web site to see what to expect.
The mission station "Sainte-Marie among the Hurons" in Midland
The Hurons and the missionaries became friends. The Iroquois did not like that at all and began fighting against them.
They were very successful with that and killed many. Also the connection to Quebec was interrupted. The last survivors of the station burnt it down before they escaped.
To see how the Hurons lived please visit also in Midland the "Huronia Museum and Huron Ouendat Village". Quendat is der original name for the Hurons.
In the Huron village
In memorial to all the tortured and killed missionaries and their followers the church "Martyr's Shrine" was built in Midland. Please check the Internet for more information until we have provided an English variant of our German site.
At Martyr's Shrine in Midland
After all the history it may not be a bad idea to do some more relaxing sightseeing. Book a cruise to the 30 000 islands. So far we could not do that. Please send us some pictures which we can use if you are more lucky.
Also the "Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre" is a great place to see unspoiled nature and many animals.

Can you see the turtle?
Once upon a time Fort Erie was host to many exciting events such as "Edinburgh 1745", the battle of the Jakobites against the English.
