New healing programs for Indigenous groups

With the support of Indigenous Services Canada, we are pleased to announce the arrival of our new Te8ekan journeys. The purpose of these traditional support programs is to enable members of Indigenous families affected by physical, psychological or emotional abuse to:

  • Strengthen their family ties

  • Recover the pride of their ancestors

  • Reconnect with their identity

Esipan Language camps

You didn't have the chance to register for our language camps this year? This is a golden opportunity to immerse yourself in Anicinape culture, thanks to this cultural weekend in total immersion, in February 2020. Traditional activities and fun guaranteed! 


Of course, we also intend to renew our regular Esipan language camp programs. Check our pages regularly or stay informed via our newsletter, to be kept informed of the next registration period.

Creativity Workshops

Kina8at also allows the learning of the arts and indigenous know-how.  


Come to our beading, moccasins, medicine bags or dream catchers workshops. Over the next months, these teachings will be offered by Kokom Jocelyne Laroche in Ste-Agathe des Monts.

Inner Journey Workshops

Grand-father T8aminik regularly offers inner journey workshops in Quebec and abroad, with his female counterpart, Grand-mother Marie-Josée Tardif. These workshops are intended for those who wish to deepen their experience of the Anicinape (Algonquin) philosophy and traditionnal medecine.

During the "Matato" workshops, you will dive into the heart of Indigenous teachings, share our ceremonies, keep the sacred fire and above all, you will take the time to meet yourslef again!

N.B.: These workshops will be lead in French, but you can speak in English if it is more confortable for you. Groups can also be organised in English on request.

Series of Workshops in Europe

T8aminik and Marie-Josée, Kina8at's cofounders, regularly travel to Europe for workshops and conferences. Most of the time, their tours take place in Spring and Fall.


In 2019-2020, they will be in France, Switzerland, Italy and Martinique.
