Sep 23, 2012 Indian Islands Reunion -- Archival Special

Indian Islands Reunion -- Archival Special

Notre Dame Bay's Indian Islands was once a thriving community.  But like so many others in the '50s and '60s, it was abandoned.  Indian Islanders resettled.

But for one very special weekend in 1988, the Islanders came home. Hundreds flocked to the Indian Islands reunion, young and old alike.  They pitched tents where old homesteads used to be.  They met old friends, relatives...they reminisced, remembered...and they celebrated a past way of life.

In this archival special, Land and Sea takes you back to the Indian Islands reunion.  Thirty years after the community had been abandoned.
