Site Chosen for Repatriation of Inuit Remains

A site has been chosen for the repatriation of the Inuit remains that were removed from Zoar.

The remains of 22 Inuit were moved from the former settlement in the late 1920s by the Field Museum of Natural History.

Zoar is located between Nain and Natuashish.

Representatives from the Nunatsiavut Government, the Torngasok Cultural Centre, the Moravian Church and the Field Museum of Natural History travelled to the site on Friday, September 17.

They travelled there to locate the cemetery and find a location to rebury the Inuit remains.

There are plans to return the Inuit remains to Zoar next summer.
