The Innu, also known as “Montagnais-Naskapi,” are a small group of indigenous people in Canada whose traditional homeland included a vast area of the Labrador Peninsula characterized by barren coasts, a spruce dominant forested interior, and a glaciated plateau dotted by numerous lakes, swamps, and bogs. They earned their living mostly by hunting, trapping, fishing, fowling and fur trading.
