Tkarón:to & Turtle Island: The Remarkable Indigenous Trade Networks

From corn to copper and countless resources in between, the Indigenous peoples’ relationship to land and water in Tkarón:to and on Turtle Island runs deep. With hundreds of nations being connected through trade routes, including waterway systems navigated by canoe, the resourcefulness of the Indigenous peoples is as prolific as the goods that were traded.
