Abstract: In the Inuit community of Rigolet, Nunatsiavut, Labrador, the environmental effects of climate change include changing weather and ice conditions and shifts in wildlife and vegetation patterns. When residents are unable to carry out traditional “on-the-land” activities, their connection to the land and emotional well-being are negatively impacted.
