Beothuk Interpretation Centre

Beothuk Interpretation Centre Review

Explore the lives of the Beothuks, an extinct First Nations people who succumbed in the early 19th century to a combination of disease and battle with European settlers. A 1.5-km (1-mile) trail leads to the archaeological site that was inhabited from about 1650 to 1720, when pressure from settlers drove the Beothuks from this part of the coast. Walk softly to feel "The Spirit of the Beothuk," represented in a commanding bronze statue by Gerald Squires that stands almost hidden in the woods.
