A hundred and twenty-nine years ago, in the year 1880, a couple of families from Hebron were to taken to Europe and showcased in a zoo.
One of those Inuit showcased was Abraham Ulrikab, who during the whole time in Europe had made a diary of this trip in amazing detail.
Chris Brookes is an independant radio producer in St. John’s.
Brookes put together a two part radio documentary about Abraham Ulrikab’s diaries that was aired on CBC Radio on November 30th and December 1st.
Now, Brookes has sent this documentary to OKâlaKatiget Radio, and given us permission to use them.
We apologize that this documentary is not translated and only in English.
