Creating an Inukshuk, Hopedale, Nunatsiavut

The Inuit people of sub arctic Labrador have recently reclaimed parts of their ancestral homeland  in a series of complex negotiations with the Canadian government. For the young Nunatsiavut government, issues related to cultural, environmental and economic sustainability are top priorities. Anna Maria and I recently led a university study group on a cross-cultural experience to Hopedale, Nunatsiavut. We collaborated closely with a group of community leaders who are developing best practices in eco and cultural tourism.
