Hebron Family Archeology Project Update

The Hebron Selection Committee voted for the family of 3 to attend the Hebron Family Archaeology Project on Friday, July 16, 2021 and the vote went 1st and 2nd choice.

Lena Onalik, the Archeologist for the Nunatsiavut Government, is hosting this project for the first time this year.

She says Thomas Tuglavina of Hopedale has accepted the opportunity to travel to Hebron; he will be taking his two nieces, Rachel Saunders and Nancy Barfoot.

Rutie Lampe will be DHSD support and Maria Merkuratsuk will be bear monitor.

Onalik says it has been a learning process and feels very humbled to have been working with the committee for this project. She would also like to thank Michelle Davies for starting this project.

Due to Transport Canada regulations, they are not able to travel by boat this year, so in collaboration with Lands and Tourism division of NG, they were able to secure plane charter to Basecamp and helicopter to Hebron from August 7-14, 2021.
