Indigenous Experiences Programs with MASC

Indigenous Experiences’ programs offer a rare opportunity to experience the rich culture, teachings, and history of Canada’s Indigenous People from a First Nation perspective. Our talented team of Indigenous artists represent the Indigenous community of Ottawa today – a diversity of native nations from across Canada (or Turtle Island as we know it). We pride ourselves on delivering a truly authentic experience that illustrates both the diversity of the Indigenous cultures originating in Canada, and how they have progressed through the ages.

Students can have the opportunity to participate in traditional activities and games that provide insight into historical and contemporary Indigenous life.
