Land of First Contact: The Story of North America's Northern Gateway is an online historical atlas covering the Strait of Belle Isle region, where Europeans and Native Americans first met. Information about each historic site in the area can be obtained by clicking on it either in the map or the alphabetical list provided. The site is meant to serve as both an educational and a tourism resource.
This site provides a journey through the memory of Acadians, the French-speakers of Atlantic Canada. In 2004, they celebrated the 400th anniversary of the first effort to create a French settlement in North America, in what was to become their part of the world. A year later, in 2005, they marked the 250th anniversary of their deportation, what they call their Grand dérangement (or Great Upheaval), at the hands of the British. This site provides both images and sounds connected with these two anniversaries, including reference to how they were marked on earlier occasions.
