Huron-Wendat Nation

Huron-Wendat group from Wendake (Lorette) at Spencerwood, Quebec City, 1880

The Huron-Wendat Nation is a Huron-Wendat First Nation whose community and reserve is at Wendake, Quebec, a municipality now enclosed within Quebec City in Canada. In the French language, used by most members of the First Nation, they are known as the Nation Huronne-Wendat. The 1760 Huron-British North American Peace Treaty, which was lost 1824, but rediscovered in the 1990s, showed that a large chunk of land named "Seigneurie de Sillery" (now part of Quebec City) was sold to the Hurons in 1760 by the Jesuits. This suggested that the Huron-Wendats have a contemporary claim to this valuable land.[1]
