Innu Cultural Revitalization

I have been showing Hugh Brody’s Hunters and Bombers this week in the Introduction to Cultural Anthropology. The film shows the conflict between the Innu of Labrador (no relation to the Inuit) and the Canadian military which, in its commitments to NATO in the early 1990s, conducted training exercises of low flying over Innu hunting grounds. I use the film to discuss cultural change and anthropologists as advocates.

In a timely piece, the Dominion on-line newspaper publishes a story about the Innu and their continuing efforts at cultural revitalization after years of impoverishment and squalor living in government-designed settlements.
