People have lived in Labrador for 9,000 years. During this time the area has been home to a variety of cultures: prehistoric Inuit; the so-called Maritime Archaic people who have evolved into today's Innu; Europeans who came to exploit the resources of the land and the sea. For any number of reasons, Europeans decided to stay and make a home in Labrador. A new way of life and new cultures were born as they learned from their Aboriginal neighbours and adapted to the demanding environment. 21st century Labrador is a mixture of vibrant and dynamic cultural groups who share a history of reliance on the resources of the land and the sea. The Virtual Museum of Labrador invites you to explore our history and learn about the forces that have shaped Labrador and its people.
