Wemotaci

Wemotachi is one of the Indian reserves of the Atikamekw landlocked in the agglomeration of La Tuque, in Mauricie, in the province of Quebec in Canada.

In language atikamekw, “Wemotaci” means: “The mountain from which one observes”. During its history, the spelling of the toponym has changed several times depending on the sources or the authors. The spelling “Wemotaci” was made official in 1997 and replaced that of “Weymontachie 23”.

This Haute-Mauricie reserve is bounded on the west and south by the Saint-Maurice River. The boundary on the east side is 3.8 km (2.4 mi) long; on the north side, its boundary extends 7.8 km (4.8 mi).

From Wemotaci, the forest road along the Saint-Maurice river on the east bank leads north to the Jolie River. On the west bank, the forest road RO-450 provides access to La Loutre dam and Gouin dam.

The Chute-Allard generating station was erected at 4.5 km (2.8 mi) downstream from the Weymont railway station, located in the East of the territory of Wemotaci.

In short, Wemotaci turns out to be a small detour of 3.2 km (2.0 mi) from the bridge spanning the Manouane River (just upstream of the confluence of the Blanche river), for travelers on the RO-461 (25) road which connects La Tuque to Wemotaci and those on the RO forest road 451(25) which links Wemotaci to Parent.
