The Nation

The Nation huronne-wendat is the only Huron / Wyandot nation in Canada. Until the mid 17th century, the Wyandot Confederation, made of 4-5 tribes, lived on a big territory stretching over modern Ontario and Quebec. The Confederation was disbanded in 1630-1650; most Wyandots were killed by epidemics or during the wars against the Iroquois. The survivors split into two groups, the Great Lakes Wyandots and the Hurons - Wendat; the latter group (c. 300 people) moved to Quebec, where they move from place to place until settling in 1697 in the village of Lorette. The place, subsequently known as Village-des-Hurons, was officially renamed Wendake in 1986.
Wendake (c. 2,700 inhabitants), the center of a reserve (c. 1,100 inhabitants), houses the Conseil de la Nation (Nation's Council) huronne-wendat, made of the chiefs of the eight family circles constitutive of the Nation and of the Grand Chief. - Pantherland website (in French) - Nation's Council official website

The Flag

The flag of the Nation huronne-wendat is white with the nation's emblem in the middle. The nation's emblem shows a beaver standing on a heap of branches and holding a green branch in its paw. The branches stand in the middle of dark blue water, under a light blue sky charged with a white cloud and seven geese.  (photo) (photo)
