"Metis Territory" Mary's Harbour Local Custom Tip by jamiesno
Mary's Harbour Local Customs: 3 reviews and 3 photos
While you are traveling through southeastern Labrador you are in the heart of Labrador Metis territory.
I myself am Metis. My grandmother Frances Snook was a Russell from William's Harbour on the southeast coast and she was of Inuit ancestory.
The Labrador Metis are a mixed blood aboriginal population. These people have Labrador Inuit grandmothers generally and Europeans grandfathers.
I have been fortunate to have traveled this region extensively and have seen every community. The people are very freindly and its the type of place you should not be shy about asking for directions, help or even a lunch, LOL.
I provided a link to a travelogue where I have focused on some Metis people. I hope you enjoy :-) For more information on the Labrador Metis political organization visit www.labmetis.org.
