The 14th immersive multimedia experience in the Lumina Enchanted Night Walk Series premiered on June 21st to commemorate Canada’s National Indigenous Peoples Day.
Onhwa’ Lumina, the latest in the Enchanted Night Walk series, marks the first Lumina in Quebec City, the province’s capital.
The multimedia experience illuminates Wendake, combining lighting, video projections, scenography and an original soundtrack to shine a light on the culture and heritage of the Huron-Wendat Nation.
Visitors are swept away into an immersive storyworld featuring an authentic narrative that aims to instill the community with a sense of pride by paying tribute to the history of the nation.
Created in close collaboration with the Huron-Wendat Nation Council, the Wendake Tourism Office and members of the Huron-Wendat community, Onhwa’ Lumina is deeply inspired by traditional practices and ancestral ways of life. The experience embraces the forest as a canvas for multimedia installations that connect the past and present, and shine a light towards the future. The essence of music, dance and storytelling is present across the 1.2 kilometer pathway.
“For us, this one-of-a-kind event is an ideal opportunity to share our history stretching back millennia and to build bridges with all visitors. A memorable experience awaits each one of them, and it’s with great pleasure that I welcome them to Nionwentsïo, our great territory.”
Rémy Vincent, Grand Chief of the Huron-Wendat Nation
Jonathan St-Onge, General Manager of Signature Experiences at Moment Factory shares in the enthusiasm: “Onhwa’ Lumina is the result of a close collaboration between Wendake Tourism, the Huron-Wendat Nation Council, members of the local community, and the Moment Factory team. This enchanted nighttime journey invites visitors to connect with the Huron-Wendat peoples to discover the rich culture of this great nation.”
