Abstract
This archaeological project investigates the long-term economic and social impact of German Moravian missionaries on Labrador Inuit culture, by exploring changes in eighteenth-and nineteenth-century Inuit material culture and architecture near the mission town of Hopedale, Labrador. My analysis archaeologically examines three sites in northern Labrador region that include Adlavik, a mid-eighteenth century Inuit sod house settlement, Anniowaktook, a late eighteenth century Inuit settlement, and the Inuit village associated with the mission at Hopedale, Avertôk. The research draws together archaeological, faunal, and ethnohistorical data to define changes in Inuit economic and subsistence strategies. Note: Abstract extracted from PDF text
