«Onikam» means «portage» in the Atikamekw language

Coop Nitaskinan invites you to discover Espace culturel Onikam, located on the bank of the Saint-Maurice River in Shawinigan. Throughout the year, the space offers various activities promoting discovery and exchange through themes relating to First Nations issues. Until this fall, the show Nikanik will teach you more about the effects of the residential school system and our shared history, as well as facilitate the discovery of talented First Nations artists. Espace culturel Onikam also houses a boutique selling native arts and crafts where you can find authentic, unique products produced through ancestral techniques.
