Starting from vibrant Nain, the largest community in Nunatsiavut, the expedition sailed north. A sombre day of recollection was spent in the abandoned community of Hebron, where members were forced to relocate in 1959. The reconstruction of the site is an important part of the reconciliation journey. Participants felt the power and spirituality of the Torngat Mountains National Park, meaning ‘place of spirits’, where the natural stone amphitheater of Ramah Bay played scene to the park’s first ever concert. We stopped to appreciate the rich landscape and hidden archeological sites, before setting sail across the Hudson Strait to Iqaluit.
The Highlights of Leg 6
We learned about reconciliation efforts at the Moravian Mission in Hebron, enjoyed a concert in Ramah Bay, and appreciated the outstanding natural environment of the Torngat Mountains.
