Greenpeace’s early work in the anti-sealing movement in the 1970s-1980s is a complex legacy for the organisation to navigate. Recognising the controversial track-record of its role in the anti-sealing movement, Greenpeace Canada apologised to Canadian Inuit in 2014. This paper outlines a case for Greenpeace to continue its path of reconciliation for activities undertaken during the anti-sealing movement and apologize to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. Particularly the paper calls for an apology to sealers, their families and communities and to First Nations and Inuit people from the province for Greenpeace’s role in inflicting and promoting forms of violence, stigma and cultural hatred and undermining Indigenous rights in the province.
