Shawnadithit: The last of the Beothuk

Come to the Methodist Chapel to find out about Shawnadithit,  a national heroine in St. Johns, Newfoundland.

The Beothuk Indians  were the aboriginal people of Newfoundland who were decimated by Europeans bringing disease and exploiting their territory for the fishing and fur industries.

Shawnadithit died in 1829 and was the last Beothuk Indian to survive.
