Labrador Student Wins Scholarship to Produce Work Based on the Basque Presence in Newfoundland and Labrador

Some of you may remember a story we reported last year about a non-profit, the Amina Anthropological Resources Association Incorporated (AARA Inc.) headed by one of our expedition guides Latonia Hartery and that they were offering a scholarship to students for work that was based on the Basque presence in Newfoundland and Labrador. Well, last month the scholarship was awarded to Aiden Hartery (No relation) from Labrador, and a music composition student at Western University in London, Ontario who is writing an opera about Basque whalers in Red Bay for his PhD thesis. Here’s a link to the full story via the CBC. Zorionak Aiden!
