In 1976, under the initiative of the Pekuakamiulnuatsh, a group of volunteers created the History and Archaeology Society of the Mashteuiatsh which led, in turn, to the creation of the Amerindian Museum of Mashteuiatsh.  On the 5th June 1977, the Museum officially opened its doors to the public, and became guardian of our collective heritage.  Little by little, collections are being completed and the people of the community are showing interest by contributing to its development and gathering the artifacts and goods that, today, are part of the collection.

Today, the Mashteuiatsh Amerindian Museum welcomes over 20,000 visitors per year, in addition to showing different collections and exhibitions belonging, notably, to the Pekuakamiulnuatsh heritage.
