The Beothuk

Knowledge and Understanding

Welcome to our website.  Interested in the history of the Beothuk people?  If so, you've landed in the right place.

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.

Take a read through the site to learn more about the history, beliefs, practices and culture of the Beothuk people. Find out about the Beothuk Institute as well as some of the projects that we support.
