Abstract

This thesis considers the European ceramic and tobacco pipe assemblages from the nineteenth-century Inuit winter village site of Kongu (IgCv-7) on Nachvak Fiord in northern Labrador. Though the inhabitants of Kongu resided in a remote northern community, they were active participants in the northern trade networks during the contact period. Through analysis and interpretation of the ceramic and tobacco pipe assemblages from Kongu, and application of a post-colonial theoretical framework, this thesis seeks to investigate the effects of European contact on traditional northern Inuit communities.
