There is a distinct culture in The Land Between due to the landforms and assets here, just as there is a distinct culture in Toronto, or north to North Bay and beyond: The Land Between is marked by undulating patterns and a diversity of natural resources, that have attracted artisans, that support craft and creation, and which marks an important navigation route and journey. The Land Between’s culture is animate and active; it is dynamic as a meeting of Great Nations of the Mississauga and Haudenashaunee, and currently of city and country. To conserve and celebrate our culture and heritage we choose projects that enliven and maintain cultural practices, preserve and enhance identity, and which foster confidence and self esteem. The Land Between hopes to support a bibrant culture that is animate, celebrated, and embraced as part of our character
Projects focus on First Nations, Early Settler history, Artisans, and current assets. To date we have created media and platforms to interpret and celebrate culture, mapped and collected data on First Nations Traditional cultural assets, ghost towns, and built heritage.
