For First-Nation peoples travelling to the site in summer, it was a layover and gathering site due to its favourable geographic setting. Groups from the northern regions and those living near the St. Lawrence River used the Saguenay and Chicoutimi Rivers to access to this place of cultural exchanges and trade.
