Canada's culture is pretty bizarre in a lot of ways, mainly because of how non-homogenous it is. I'm sure that you, like me, have often been asked "What is Canadian TV like?" "What is Canadian food like?" "What is Canadian music?" and been at a loss for an answer.\nThe reason for that is that there is no straight answer: in Quebec, we like poutine, in Alberta, it's all about beef, and the Maritimes eat plenty of fish and seafood. Of course, there's also Indigenous food, food that's been around for much longer than all other traditions in Canada.\nIn an effort to preserve Indigenous culture and reclaim food sovereignty, many activists have, in recent years, focused on learning more about Indigenous foods. Now, more Indigenous restaurants are slowly popping up all over the country.\nBelow are listed 6 spots and services in Quebec that serve First Nations food!\nREAD ALSO: Dirty Dogs Montreal Now Sells Beyond Meat Burgers\nTL;DR These 6 Quebec spots, services, and events that serve up authentic Indigenous food.\nLa Traite\nThis restaurant is located in Quebec city on Wendake land.
