Miawpukek became a permanent community sometime around 1822. Before 1822 it was one of many semi-permanent camping sites used by the Mi'kmaw people who were at the time still nomadic and traveling throughout the east coast.
Battle Harbor was the fiscal and social center of SE Labrador for two centuries. The decline and eventual collapse of the fishery thrust the island into a state of disarray.
Today the glory of the island has been revived. Stroll among the beautifully restored buildings learning about the key role of the island in the economic and social sphere of Newfoundland & Labrador.
Traditional Inuit practices remain strong and most of the six hundred plus residents are members of the Labrador Inuit Association.
The Hopedale Mission is considered to be the oldest wooden-frame building east of Quebec and has been declared a National Historic Site. There is a wonderfully run museum located by the Mission.
The fjords here reach well back into the depths of the Torngats as you will be overshadowed by cliffs rising straight up from the sea, peaking at 1,700 m, the highest point of land in Labrador.
The Torngat Mountains claim some of the oldest rocks on the planet and provide some of the best exposure of geological history. The rocky landscape is a challenge to life, and the species that make their home here are a resilient bunch with fascinating survival adaptations.
Hope to see a number of species during your time in Northern Labrador. The intent is to make expeditionary stops in the northern reaches of Labrador, including the Eclipse Bay, Nackvak Fiord and Saglek Bay.
