MUN and North West River, Sitting in a Tree
Labrador Institute staff took to the road for this year's public engagement event, "MUN and North West River, Sitting in a Tree." We had a wonderful time renewing and celebrating relationships in North West River, with about 50 people in all dropping by. The highlights of the event were a tour of the facility with special demonstrations by Scott Neilsen and Merline Fonkwe, and a fascinating presentation by Andrea Procter called "We're engaged…right? Rethinking the relationship between researchers, outsiders, and Labradorians". Thanks to Ed Tuttauk for his help and warm welcome; to Marlyce Shangreaux for wonderful eats; and to everybody who came out from North West River and Happy Valley-Goose Bay!
Please take some time to enjoy some photos of the event as well as a video of Andrea's presentation.
