Aitnanipan. “This is how we lived”Serge Jauvin

While Serge Jauvin’s photos are on display this weekend at the Quebec International Book Fair, we can relive through this documentary work his long stay with the Innu of Unamen Shipu (La Romaine), during the 1980s. This story about the last nomads of the North Shore is a unique and intimate testimony of Innu know-how which illustrates, in images and words, life in the community and on the ancestral territory.
