The outskirts of Toronto.  The land north of and around Toronto had been occupied by the Anishinabek, the Haudenosauneega (confederacy), and the Huron-Wendat, for some 12 to 15,000 years. It was purchased by Treaty 13 in 1805. The woods were cleared for farming by the settlers. Eventually, as the suburbs sprawled, the farms were cleared for housing tracts. This continues at an accelerated pace and all that remains are glimpses, and small outcrops, of what once was.    A work in progress
