PEOPLING THE LAND  

Peopling the Land


The Letter C anadians, like people everywhere, form an attachment to the places where they live. This is true whether their families have been here since time immemorial or have arrived recently. This theme deals with the places and stories in our past that reveal how different peoples have moved across the land and left their mark on it. Ports of entry and immigration stations offer one way of exploring these stories while special places and archaeological sites help confirm the enormous antiquity of human occupancy of parts of this land. Also, much can be learned from rural cultural landscapes and urban historic districts. They are physical evidence of how each generation, whether newcomers or internal migrants, balanced the competing demands of tradition and environment to imprint their presence on the land.    Port aux Choix, Newfoundland - Pre-Contact Burial and Habitation Sites
