Much like other objects of material culture, First Nations used to decorate paddles with designs reflecting spiritual beliefs and family ties. Onquata means to revive this culture by offering these great creations to the world. The owners, from the Wendat community, are on a mission to make people adopt these great paddles in their homes for decoration. We agree! They look great and contemporary even if their spirit is from the past.
