Toronto's Huron-Wendat Heritage

The north shore of Lake Ontario, including present-day Toronto, was once the home of the ancestral Huron-Wendat people. Accomplished farmers and traders, they occupied numerous villages between AD 1200 and 1600, nearly always along rivers and creeks. They left behind artifacts that included remnants of their distinctive ceramic vessels, tobacco pipes, stone axes and bone tools, all of which help archeologists identify sites as being ancestral Huron-Wendat. One such village was a short walk from here, along Black Creek.
