"Indigenous Peoples have always claimed to have inhabited America since ancient times. This reference
to the distant past is expressed through tales of the creation of the world which have always linked
them to this continent. There are assumptions among scientists that Indigenous groups began
populating South America even earlier than 40,000 years ago. From Beringia, they are said to have
travelled down the Pacific coast. But what about Canada and more specifically, the territory we call the
province of Québec?"
