Aboriginal Wigwam, Sainte-Marie among the Hurons was a French Jesuit settlement in Wendake, the land of the Wendat, near modern Midland, Ontario, from 1639 to 1649. It was the first European settlement in what is now the province of Ontario. Eight missionaries from Sainte-Marie were martyred, and were canonized by the Roman Catholic Church in 1930. Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons is a National Historic Site of Canada and a reconstruction of the mission now operates as a living museum.
