Fort Odanak, 1704-1759
The search for traces of a fortified abenaki village.
In 1704, on the orders of the King of France, Fort Odanak was built to serve as a rampart against Iroquois and British raids. Today thanks to archaeology, this once fortified village inhabited by the Abenakis reveals its secrets. Relive the history of this unique fort, explore its physical remains and learn about the Abenakis First Nations in this new online exhibition developed by the Musée des Abénakis.
A realisation of Virtual Museum of Canada of Canadian Heritage.
