First Nations Then and Now

Site 1 is the Emmett Gardens.  First Nations fished in the now drained wetlands, and First Nations farmers grew corn, beans,and squash

Site 5 is the beginnings of a long house, constructed using flexible branches and normally covered with birch bark. No one has been maintaining the birch trees which require both lots of light and moist roots, and have almost disappeared from the Humber valley.
