    Labrador Metis & Fisherman - Harold Curl

    While you are traveling through southeastern Labrador you are in the heart of Labrador Metis territory.

    I myself am Metis. My grandmother Frances Snook was a Russell from William's Harbour on the southeast coast and she was of Inuit ancestory.

    The Labrador Metis are a mixed blood aboriginal population. These people have Labrador Inuit grandmothers generally and Europeans grandfathers.

    I have been fortunate to have traveled this region extensively and have seen every community. The people are very freindly and its the type of place you should not be shy about asking for directions, help or even a lunch, LOL.

    I provided a link to a travelogue where I have focused on some Metis people. I hope you enjoy :-) For more information on the Labrador Metis political organization visit www.labmetis.org.

    Crab Fishing Boats in Mary's Harbour

    In Mary's Harbour and St. Lewis the economy is largely based on a crab fishery. There are a number of actual fishermen and hundreds more that get seasonal employment within the crab processing plant.

    Here in this picture you can see some of the crab boats in Mary's Harbour.

    At the local plant you can actually go there and buy some crab as well, and I can attest it is very good so enjoy!!
