Plaque Replaced at Hebron

Former Hebronimuit gathered with government representatives at Hebron earlier this month for the unveiling of a replacement plaque.

The Minister of Environment and responsible for Parks Canada, Jim Prentice, joined Nunatsiavut Government representatives for the unveiling on August 24.

The plaque designates the former mission building at Hebron as a national historic site.

The site was designated a national historic site in 1970 by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board.

The plaque was replaced because the earlier version had stated that Inuit had abandoned Hebron.

Following the unveiling, Minister Prentice spent time with the former Hebronimuit listening to their stories of life in Hebron.
