Notes:
Wendake is the current name for the Huron-Wendat Nation reserve, an enclave within the former city of Loretteville in the La Haute-Saint-Charles borough of Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. One of the Seven Nations of Canada, this was formerly known as Village-des-Hurons ("Huron Village"), and also as (Jeune)-Lorette. The approximately 3,000 Wyandot in Quebec are primarily Catholic and speak French as a first language. Since the late 20th century, archeologists have found large 16th-century villages of the Wendat (Huron) in the northern Lake Ontario region, which is where they believe the people coalesced as a distinct group. Later they migrated south and by the early 17th century had settled in their historical territory of Wendake in the Georgian Bay region. The Wyandot Confederation was made up of loosely associated tribes who spoke a mutually intelligible Iroquoian language. The Huron-Wendat settled in in the village of Lorette in 1697; the reserve population is 1,555 persons (2001 census).
