- Inuit, the original inhabitants of the Nain area in northern Labrador have historically occupied the northern coastal region of the entire Quebec/Labrador peninsula. Inuit of the Thule culture arrived in northern Labrador around 1450 as part of their expansion eastward from the Bering Sea, displacing Inuit of the Dorset culture who had previously settled in the region. These Thule bands followed a semi-nomadic life style based on the harvesting of marine mammals, caribou and other wildlife. The Inuit currently inhabiting the northern communities of Labrador are the cultural and genetic descendants of these Thule bands.
