History and Renewal of Labrador's Inuit-Métis

John C. Kennedy (Author) 

This collection of essays presents new research on the archaeology, history, and contemporary adaptations of Inuit-Métis of central and southeastern Labrador from Lake Melville south to Chateau Bay. It reports on results from “Understanding the Past to Build the Future,” a Community-University Research Alliance (CURA) funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Contributing authors include veteran Labrador Studies specialists as well as emerging scholars. Many of their findings challenge longstanding assumptions about Labrador’s Aboriginal history. The editor, ethnographer and historical anthropologist John C. Kennedy, is author of several books, including Holding the Line: Ethnic Boundaries in a Northern Labrador Community.
