HERD: Inuit Voices on Caribou

The "HERD" project tells the story of Inuit connections with caribou in the Nunatsiavut and NunatuKavut regions of Labrador, Canada. 
 
Through Inuit leadership, we are using visual media as a way to share Inuit voices and experiences with caribou so that this information can be preserved for future generations.
So far, 85 Inuit from 11 communities have taken part in this work. 
This website hosts some of the visual media that we are currently working on, including a documentary film and photography.
