Two Hebron Relocatees Selected for Hebron Family Archeology Project

Two people have been selected to spend their summer in Hebron.

Jamie Brake is the Archeologist for the Nunatsiavut Government.

He says the two are John Jararuse and Jerry Tuglavina; both are relocatees from Hebron.

Brake says they were selected by a committee under the Hebron Family Archeology Project.

The two will stay at their hometown, while some archeologists do some research.

The Nunatsiavut Government archeologists will be doing some interviews with Jararuse and Tuglavina while they research certain places.

And while they try to determine who owned some dwellings there before they were relocated as well.

NG Archeology Assistant Michelle Davies added in an email that the selection committee met on Thursday, June 23rd and voted for the two people selected.

She also thanked everyone for submitting their names for the Hebron Family Archeology Project.

Davies added she will keep the list of people’s names from Hebron who may want to take part in future research.

If you would like to submit your name, Michelle Davies can be contacted at the Nunatsiavut Government Office in Nain.
