Some cultural groups provide a glimpse at the past because they preserve or adhere to traditional behaviours and (or) living conditions. This brief introduction outlines a series of papers presented at the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology Conference that used this model to explore changes in the physical activity behaviour of children over time. Certaines communautés nous donnent un aperçu du passé car elles ont préservé ou adopté les coutumes ancestrales et les conditions de vie. Cette brève introduction présente des articles qui ont fait l’objet d’une communication au congrès de la Société canadienne de physiologie de l’exercice et qui ont utilisé ce modèle pour analyser dans le temps les comportements des enfants en matière d’activité physique.
