Nain, 1884
The Moravians established mission stations at Nain, Hebron, Makkovik, and elsewhere in Labrador during the 18th and 19th centuries. Mission workers forbade Europeans from entering mission grounds and took over all trade operations with the Inuit. They also provided the Inuit with religious, educational, and medical services.
