Heritage Forum Update

Different groups and organizations representing the five Nunatsiavut Communities, Upper lake Melville, Southern Labrador and the Province were in Nain for meetings last week.

They got together for two days on February 3rd and 4th to discuss heritage related issues.

Jamie Brake, an Archaeologist with the Nunatsiavut Government attended the meetings.

He says the meetings went really well and a lot of good things came out of it.

Brake says some of the things that were discussed were; the Provincial representative Paul Dicks commending the group, and saying the Labrador communities had the expertise when it came to addressing heritage related issues.

Another thing from the forum was that they want to make this an annual event and would look for funding to make this happen. They also said they want to find money to hire a regional coordinator.
