NATUASHISH, Newfoundland and Labrador – The Innu National is again being ignored and kept in the dark over negotiations between Canadian and Newfoundland provincial governments with regard to development of hydro projects in Labrador. The Province and Ottawa reached a financial restructuring deal this week and Innu leaders found out about it on the news. The Churchill Falls and Muskrate Falls are on the ancestral home if the Innu peoples which they call Nitassinan.
