This project was made possible by the financial backing of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and by the support and participation of Mario Béland (Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec), Christine Brisson (Château Ramezay, Montreal), Maxime Gohier (Canada Research Chair in the Aboriginal Land Question, Université du Québec à Montréal), Jonathan Lainey (Library and Archives Canada, Ottawa), Guislaine Lemay (McCord Museum, Montreal), Marie Pelletier (Séminaire de Nicolet), Stéphane Picard (Council of the Huron-Wendat Nation), Louis-Karl Picard-Sioui and Marie-Paule Robitaille (Musée de la civilisation, Quebec City), Michel Teharihulen Savard (Huron-Wendat Museum, Wendake), Guy Sioui Durand (sociologist and curator), Marcel Taillon (photographer), Benoît Thériault (Canadian Museum of History, Gatineau), and the archivists of the Centre de référence de l’Amérique française, Quebec City. Sandrine Garon, Gabrielle Marcoux, Isabelle Masse, David Nadeau, and Gabrielle Roberge, student research assistants at the Université de Montréal, were also important to the project. I want finally to thank the entire team at the Art Canada Institute for their generosity and professionalism. I am honoured to be part of this adventure and to have contributed to an increased public awareness of the work of Zacharie Vincent and his community. —Louise Vigneault
