Labrador Interpretation Centre


At the Labrador Interpretation Centre, you’ll discover the founding peoples of Labrador—Innu, Inuit, Métis and Settlers. Here, you will explore Labrador’s ancient indigenous history and see how we live our lives today. 

The permanent exhibition The Past is Where We Come From combines voices, art and artifacts from each of our cultures. The exhibition is presented in Inuktitut, Innu-aimun and English.

Special events and temporary exhibitions are presented each year.







With a focus on Hebron, Labrador, this exhibition considers place and the distance between here and there – present and past – through memories, photographs, and archival documents.
