President's visit to NunatuKavut
Memorial University President Dr. Gary Kachanoski visited NunatuKavut Community Council in Goose Bay, Labrador in November 2011. Snowy weather prevented a planned visit to Black Tickle, a NunatuKavut community on Labrador's South coast.
During this visit the President and the Special Adviser met with the NunatuKavut President, staff, council members, and elders.
The President also paid a visit to a local dog team, Northern Lights Dog Sledding, owned by NunatuKavut Community Council Vice-President - Scott Hudson. Mr. Hudson explained the cultural significance and continued importance of the Labrador Husky. President Kachanoski was particularly interested in the efforts of Labradorians to preserve the breed and have it recognized.
