Okkak in Labrador
In 1771 King George III of England gave a land grant to the Moravian Church to establish missions for the local Inuit in northern Labrador. In the 18th century, Jens Haven and his followers built missions at Nain (1771), Okkak (1776) and Hopedale (1782). These missions also served as trading posts.
