TP-4762 THE HISTORY OF INDIGENOUS HABITATION IN HALIBURTON COUNTY

Subject

That is the approach that I have chosen to take. I will explore the Indigenous Habitation in Haliburton County in several components. Two main components are archaeology and identity because the two are entangled and interdependent but there are many others that are also essential. A geographic approach is also necessary because location and environment are essential to defining a culture. It is also necessary to look beyond the borders of the county and even to other parts of North America because trade between Indigenous civilizations has influenced the inhabitants from across great distances. It is necessary to draw from a range of sources because of the limitations of memory and limitations of available archaeological data. A combination of the two will give a more complete account of Indigenous habitation of the area along with early written accounts, oral history, stories, imagery, maps, archival documents and knowledge of the present culture and language.
