KWE 2023


In 2017, the idea of a major event in the heart of Quebec City as part of the festivities surrounding the 150th anniversary of Confederation was born. The Huron-Wendat Nation Council and the Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador, which represents all the Nations in Quebec and is the voice of these Nations and their communities, took on the task of organizing a major cultural event with the 11 Indigenous Nations of Quebec, in Quebec City.

During the pre-pandemic editions, the 30,000 visitors were able to enjoy an original and contemporary program that respected the authenticity of the Indigenous peoples of Quebec. In 2021, KWE adapted its program with a hybrid edition. Visitors had access to a range of activities, video clips of skills and musical performances online and broadcast to enjoy KWE! as if they were there.
