Aperçu Overview

Huronie sur la carte.

Toponymie Toponymy

In 1634-50, the Huron territories were located in present-day Georgian Bay area, Ontario. In those days, the people of Nouvelle-France called it "Huronie".

After 1650, when the Huronie was destroyed, perhaps it is appropriate to refer to the location by its historic name in Huron language, "Wendake". Until 1790, this territory is in Québec, and thereafter Ontario. We use the expression "Wendake historique" to distinguish with what will be the future municipality of Wendake near Québec City.

Note about Place of Birth: before 1609, this was before contact with Europeans. It is perhaps appropriate to call this location « Pays des Hurons, Amérique ».

Histoire History

Plaque commémorative : JESUIT MISSION TO MANITOULIN 1648-50 In 1648 Father Joseph Poncet then serving at Ste. Marie in Huronia was placed in charge of the Jesuit mission of St. Pierre by his superior Father Paul Ragueneau. This newly created mission was formed to serve the Algonkian-speaking Indians of Manitoulin Island and the north shore of Lake Huon. Poncet the first known European resident of Manitoulin (called "Île de Ste. Marie" by the missionaries and "Ekaentoton" by the Hurons), served on this Island from October 1648 to May 1649. He returned to Manitoulin before the end of the latter year but was compelled to abandon the mission in 1650 following the defeat and dispersal of the Hurons by the Iroquois.
