Intermediate Indian Sites

Intermediate Indian Sites

"Intermediate Indians" is a term used to identify a people living on the southern and central Labrador coasts between about 3,500 and 2,000 years ago. "Intermediate" signifies their historical position between their Maritime Archaic ancestors and the Recent Indians who succeeded them. The word "Indians" distinguishes these people from Palaeo-Eskimos whose distribution included the central and southern Labrador coasts at the same time.

There are nearly 200 known Intermediate Indian archaeological sites in the province. To learn more about the Intermediate Indian you can go to:
