The Project

Land Stories is a web mapping application that shares the history of a unique region called the Land Between through a collection of stories. The Land Between is where the Canadian Shield meets the St. Lawrence Lowlands, has been home to Indigenous peoples for thousands of years and is an area that proved extremely challenging to European settlement. The map displays over 180 stories that were gathered by volunteers and emphasizes both the Indigenous and European history in the region.
