Struggling With My SoulBook - 2017
George Richs Struggling with My Soul is a story of growing up caught between two worlds. A Labrador Mushuau Innu, Georges family and people gave up their nomadic way of life to settle in Davis Inlet. But the promise of a better life in a new place quickly turned to alcoholism, despair and tragedy. George goes on to tell the story of the relocation of his people from Davis Inlet Innu to Natuashish. He shares some of his thoughts about critical issues such as child welfare and education, as well as the involvement of the Labrador Innu in resource developments and the land claims process. This is story is one of a people coming apart, but it is also a story of healing and of the hard work it takes to put ones life, ones soul and ones community back together.
