This local organization and attraction presents authentic Indigenous culture through traditional music, dance, storytelling, food and activities in Canada’s capital.

Indigenous Experiences creates engaging programming that reflects the diversity of Indigenous communities. Between May and September, groups can arrange a visit to their seasonal site on the grounds of the Canadian Museum of History, along the Ottawa River across from Parliament Hill. Special group packages include Indigenous meals, interactive crafts and Pow Wow dancing. Groups also have the option to experience the Ottawa River as the First Peoples and early explorers once did – on the water. The Canadian Odyssey experience includes a guided tour of the Canadian Museum of History, as well as a 90-minute expedition aboard a traditional Montréal canoe with a costumed interpreter.

Indigenous Experiences also offers programming at their permanent location, Mādahòkì Farm. At this site in Ottawa’s Greenbelt just south of downtown Ottawa, locals and visitors are welcome to attend seasonal festivals, meet animals such as rare and endangered Ojibwe Spirit Horses and shop at the year-round Indigenous marketplace. Groups can also arrange special visits year-round.
