Menahwesk: A Meeting Place (Place Fort La Tour)
When Samuel-de-Champlain first arrived in the Saint John harbour he was met by the Indigenous inhabitants of the village of Ouigoudy that called the Saint John river their home. Their expertise and knowledge of the land proved invaluable to the new visitors and would ultimately allow the creation of Canada’s first incorporated city. Explore the relationship Fort la Tour had with the Wolastiqiyik people and how this location is the origins of Saint John, and Canada itself.
