By the early eighteenth century, French archival records for the Strait of Belle Isle describe repeated, divisive relations between French and Inuit. This paper considers European-Inuit relations before this time and thereafter through recently collected archaeological evidence from southern Labrador as well as archival material. The archaeological data point to a more nuanced contact landscape than suggested by the written documents while the latter point to greater Inuit presence than suggested by the archaeology.
