Volunteers and Supporters

The Beothuk Institute is strictly a volunteer organization which depends on its members and others interested in our overall mission. Here are some of the people either directly involved or who are in support of the work we do. (Please note, our photo gallery is a work in progress. We will continue to add to it as photographs become available).
