Knowledge and Understanding

The Beothuk Institute is committed to developing a better public knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the history and culture of the Beothuk, of their prehistoric ancestors, and of other First Nation Peoples of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  As a volunteer, charitable organization, we lobby and provide support for projects that will help advance that purpose.
