NTV is set to air the stirring and emotionally poignant documentary The Beothuk Story this December. 

From writer, producer and director Christopher Aylward – from St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador and a professor at Toronto’s Ryerson University – Aylward has spent 10 years researching the Beothuk and believes they are blended into our population. The Beothuk Story is an emotional documentary film that was a decade in the making. 

The film had a premiere at the FIN Atlantic International Film Festival this past September, one of the renowned film festivals in all of Atlantic Canada.

‘This is Their story’

“For over 200 years, European history has taught us that Newfoundland’s Beothuk people are extinct. Giving voice to the Indigenous people, archaeologists, genealogists, and historians from across Atlantic Canada, The Beothuk Story debunks this myth,” the official film synopsis reads.

    Just wondering why Burgeo is not listed on the map, as we all know there was a burial site believed to be Beothuk in Burgeo area on the island of Rencounter ,as well as Burgeo do have an aboriginal background thats well documented . regarding the bones and other items found in the small cave in that area it is in ST John’s and I do believe it should be a part of Burgeo’s past and in Burgeo and not St John’s
