Bringing a historic Innu legend to a new generation

Innu-aimun and English version of an Innu Legend
"A new children's book published by the Labrador Institute (LI) brings a historic Innu legend to a new generation. The Man Who Married a Beaver was made possible by a donation from the Hibernia Management and Development Company Ltd. (HMDC), originally received during Memorial's successful Dare To fundraising campaign. It was officially released during a book launch Nov. 23 at the Sheshatshiu Innu School, where it was read in two languages."
