Held annually by the Ilnuatsh of Mastheuiatsh, mukushan, a communal feast during the spring gathering, is a traditional meal to which all Ilnu and non-Ilnu community members are invited. Julienne Dominique’s family takes part in this great get-together, which also involves games and competitions of all types. But the hunt on the traditional territory, Nitassinan, truly launches the festivities. It’s a time for happy reunions!
