The Nunatsiavut government has expressed its condolences to the family of Abraham "Aba" Kojak of Nain, who died Sunday.
President Sarah Leo says Kojak was a respected hunter and fisherman and was a strong advocate for Inuit rights.
Kojak served on the board of directors of the Labrador Inuit Association before the Nunatsiavut government was established.
He also played a key role as a negotiation in the talks leading up to the ratification of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement.
