Inuit seeking compensation for ‘cultural loss’

From the CBC: An Inuit man who was born in Labrador is one of 16,000 aboriginal people in a class action lawsuit in Ontario seeking compensation from the federal government for the loss of their language and culture. Rob Lackie was adopted into a non-aboriginal family at the age of four. He said it was always clear to him that he wasn’t the same as his brother and sister. It took years, but eventually he found out he was born in Happy Valley-Goose Bay and his parents were Inuit. For more, visit the link below.
