Visit to Pointe-a-Callière Museum

Long before Montréal was founded, Natives camped for centuries on the point where the Little Saint-Pierre River met the St. Lawrence River – right where Pointe-à-Callière Museum stands today. What better way to learn about the history of our city than to experience it first hand! It is for this reason that the grade 9 class visited the Pointe-a-Callière Museum for a tour and presentation on the beginnings of Montreal from the point of view from the first occupants on the point. What cultural family did they belong to? Were they nomadic or more sedentary? What were they doing on the point? We uncovered various artifacts that exhibited the various characteristics of the aboriginal groups and made us further their way of life.
