Masteuiatsh and the Ilnu culture

On 17 October 2013 a meeting was held with the aim to assess the degree of fidelity of the intervention (we compared the Ilnu version of the intervention to the original program).
The question we asked was: during the 14 sessions, did the adapted program follow the same objectives?
Audrey (Quebec coordinator on the left of the photo) recorded the responses of (from left to right) Jacinthe, Meggie (facilitators) and Maggie (coordinator). Thank you all for your cooperation!
After the meeting, I (the new project coordinator) visited the Native Museum of Mashteuiatsh to discover more about the Ilnu culture.

Respect is an important value in the Ilnu culture. In the language, the verb “to see” is pronounced differently depending on whether the eye rests on living beings (see the woman at the top of the mural in the image) or inanimate things (see the man at the bottom of the mural in the image), in order to give special consideration for all living beings.

Denis is the designer of the mural and a guide at the museum. Thank you to Denis and to all the staff of the museum, including Denise and Louise, for their warm welcome.
Mashteuiatsh is located on Lake St- Jean.
The culture is also very present in the interior of L’auberge Robertson. It was a very nice place for a pleasant stay in Mashteuiatsh.
