First Peoples' Festival
Information on the activity
August 7, 2018 to August 15, 2018
The oldest, most deeply rooted and most longstanding resistance movement in the Americas invites you to its great annual event. A peaceful, joyous cultural event, drumming to the earth’s heartbeat. With the words of ancient languages, millennial cultures live in the present time as Montreal once again becomes the New World’s cultural metropolis.
The starting signal has resounded.. For a week, myriad events, from gastronomy to cinematography, from poetry readings to electro concerts, from la Place des Festivals to the Kahnesetake pine forest, will provide many opportunities for discovery, meetings and sharing stories with the First Nations of Americas. We have to reinvent the world at every step. Going back to the wellspring also means spawning in the living waters of renewal.
