Nunatsiavut President Johannes Lampe says he was saddened to hear of the passing of Carol Brice-Bennett, who was instrumental in gathering much of the data that helped pave the way for the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement.

“Carol was a well-respected anthropologist and researcher who devoted much of her life documenting Labrador Inuit history,” says President Lampe. “On behalf of the Nunatsiavut Government and Beneficiaries of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement, I extend my condolences to Carol’s family and friends.”

Ms. Brice-Bennett passed away on Sunday, surrounded by family, in Montreal where she was born and retired in 2015.

After graduating in anthropology at McGill University and Memorial University of Newfoundland, Ms. Brice-Bennett contributed to early research on Inuit land claims. Best known for the study “Our Footprints are Everywhere: Inuit land use and occupancy in Labrador” (1977), she also authored four additional books on Labrador Inuit history and culture, and completed the text on a reference book for use by secondary schools in the Labrador School Board. She also served as chair of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Ratification Committee, leading up to the final vote that established Nunatsiavut.
