Within the context of the Innu grammar project, Lynn Drapeau led a series of workshops on the Innu language, in collaboration with the Institut Tshakapesh (Sept-Îles, Quebec). Each of these workshops lasted three days and involved a dozen participants, representing each of the Innu communities (Comité Iǹnashtishkuesssat).

The photo below was taken at one of these workshops in the Spring of 2011.
