The Return to Nutak
Yesterday, there was an emotional ceremony in Nutak to remember families relocated from the community in 1956. A monument was unveiled with the names of people moved out by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. The government offered an apology back in 2005. But the hardship of being relocated is still deeply felt. Johannes Lampe lead the ceremony to remember the familes who were told they had to go. Here’s what it sounded like.

*PART TWO *
In part one, we travelled to Nutak for a ceremony to remember people relocated from the North coast community. We’re going back there now. In 1956, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador forced dozens of familes to leave Nutak. It apologized for that in 2005. Yesterday, the apology was recited at an emotional cermony. Our Peter Cowan made the trip to Nutak. Jim Lyall, Christine Baikee, and Johannes Lampe share what it meant for them to be there.
