About me

Location Sheshatshui, Labrador, Canada
Introduction I am an Innu woman living in Sheshatshui, Labrador. For many years I have committed my life to protecting the environment for my children and grandchildren. For over 13 years I have led a canoe trip and spring snowshoe walk for my people. Even when it’s hard, I go. Nothing stops me because “nutshimit” (the bush/country) is very important for our culture. Before I’m gone I want to see some change, I want to help my people and teach the children. I don’t want to see my children lose everything—I know we can’t go back to how things were, but I don’t want them to lose their Innu identity, culture and life.
Interests Teaching my children and grandchildren, Protecting Mishta Shipu (The Churchill River), Cultivating Innu Culture, Being in Nutshimit
