Over the last 10 years, a research group from Memorial University and McMaster University have been working toward gaining further insight into the genetics and lifeways of Beothuk and Maritime Archaic populations in Newfoundland and Labrador. As a direct result of the continued support and interest from the Beothuk Institute, Innu Nation, NunatuKavut, Nunatsiavut, Miawpukek First Nation, Qalipu First Nation, The Rooms Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canadian Museum of History, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, they are delighted to report and discuss with you the results of this research prior to publication in Current Biology on 12 October 2017.

- The NLAS and Samantha Letemplier would like to thank everyone who took the time to come out to our public presentation of Samantha’s research results on the Harvey Hopkins Archaeology Collection in the town of Old Perlican, Newfoundland and Labrador this past Monday afternoon. Samantha tells us that the talk was very well attended and wanted to pass on that she really enjoyed speaking with community members and getting to answer so many questions following her talk! Here is a picture of Samantha and Ivy Crowley-Saint, daughter of the late Havey Hopkins who originally collected this fascinating paleo-Inuit Middle Dorset assemblage while preparing to dig a well on his property back in the 1960’s.
