First Nations Experiences

Ontario’s rich Aboriginal history is for all to enjoy. Pow Wows, historic sites, trails and camping bring First Nations’ culture and traditions to life.



First Nations Experiences

Ontario has several excellent First Nations experiences that you can take part in to discover their history and traditions.

Aboriginal Experiences
Located on Victoria Island in the heart of Ottawa, Turtle Island Tourism Company is a great way to get acquainted with the First Nations culture and hear storytellers, see traditional dancers, taste traditional cuisine or paddle across the Ottawa River to their base camp location. 

Great Spirit Circle Trail
Let the guides of this Manitoulin Island based company introduce you to local story tellers, dancers and elders. Visitors can partake in a half-day excursion or up to a five-night stay. Choose from a teepee, log cabin or an eco-lodge for your accommodation at various First Nations communities on the island. Learn how to make a moccasin, dream catcher or the traditional bread called "bannock", listen to ancient legends, see a local theatre group perform, go for a hike or experience a Pow Wow. Most experiences are from mid-May to mid-October.

Moose Cree Outdoor Discoveries & Adventures
Located on Moose Factory Island near the mouth of James Bay, Moose Cree Outdoor Discoveries and Adventures is a First Nations outfitting and guiding company that will introduce you to the history and traditions of the Cree people. Let your guide lead you through historical sites or pitch in at your campsite and erect a teepee before enjoying a traditional Cree dinner cooked over an open fire.
