Shaputuan Museum

The mission of the Shaputuan Museum of Uashat which opened in 1998, is to share Innu culture and to facilitate the dialogue between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. That is achieved through intercultural exchanges and actions intended for young people, as well as Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal schools. The museum houses a permanent exhibit entitled “The Progress of the Seasons in Innu Territory”, which focuses on the traditional life of the Innu through the seasons, as well as some one hundred objects bearing witness to the past. The Innu Tshitshuk summer solstice, which takes place on June 21 is among its most popular activities.
