Port au Choix, on the west side of Newfoundland’s Great Northern
Peninsula, has been populated for thousands of years. The rich waters off
this coast have supported many different groups of people, including those
who live here today. The remains of four ancient cultures have been found
at Port au Choix to date: Maritime Archaic Indian, Dorset and Groswater
Paleoeskimo, and Recent Indians. Archaeologists searched many years for a
site such as this one, which sheds new light on our understanding of
native peoples in this part of the world.
