The first episode of this series starts with an introduction to The Land Between concept - beginning with how its transitional geology and ecology has been understood for centuries.  Recently, the late Peter Alley passionately promoted a broader understanding of this ecotone - a very unique landscape. The Land Between has four great gathering places in the histories of First Nations peoples: Mazinaw (Bon Echo), Kinomagewapkong (Peterborough Petroglyphs), Mnjikaning (Orillia) and Beausoleil Island; they had unique connections with this region. The symbiotic relationship that developed here between the agricultural Wendat of the south and the hunter-gatherer Anishinabe of the North is also explored.  Finally, we look at Europeans’ first impressions of The Land Between, the chaos that the Beaver Wars brought to the region, and the resulting peace treaties, which re-established sharing of the land's resources.
