Learning about Wendat and Jesuits at Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons

Wendat and Jesuits at Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons
This summer when we visited Wendake in Quebec, we learned about the Huron Wendat people and how their lifestyle and lives changed after making contact with the French Jesuits in the 1600s. Our curiosity led us to Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons in Ontario.

We went to relax and explore Refrew County in the Ottawa valley this summer. From the first Anishinabe settlers to European immigrants, visitors are attracted to the charms of the rushing water, peaceful lakes, rolling hills, and trails in this county.
