Born from the inspiration of Lise and Lara, a Wendat mother-daughter duo, the Onquata company is renowned for its hand-painted paddles inspired by First Nations culture.

Stemming from a matriarchal tradition, their creations are influenced by their traditions and inspired by ancestral knowledge. Indeed, paddles, now contemporary objects, find their roots in the designs proposed by the family business. They are inspired by their traditional use, from the time when they were used to travel across lakes and rivers to trade and to meet other Nations.
