Indigenous Experiences brings Indigenous history and culture to life through engaging and authentic programming. From July to early September, visitors can get to know Canada’s First Nations through traditional music and dance performances, storytelling, as well as displays and crafts. Programming takes place in a covered area outdoors on the shores of the Ottawa River directly below the Canadian Museum of History, across from Parliament Hill. Tickets are available at the Museum for multiple performances each day. Between May and September, groups can reserve special packages that include authentic indigenous meals and interactive Pow Wows. 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.
