Innu Caribou Hunters
Caribou antlers hang in a tree, placed there by an Innu hunter. The antlers are a sign of the Innu’s respect to the animal’s spirit. The Innu people live in northern Quebec and Labrador, where caribou have been the mainstay of their lives for thousands of years.
Since the 1960s, however, the Innu have settled into villages, making it difficult for them to follow and hunt the caribou. Instead, they have had to rely more and more on other kinds of food.
