In September 1999 Tshikapisk Foundation initiated its first archaeological investigations at Kamestastin. Under the direction of Dr Stephen Loring (of the Arctic Studies Center at the Smithsonian Institution) a systematic surveyof the islands and shore lines of Kamestastin was undertaken by a 7 person Tshikapisk crew. The Tshikapisk crew quickly identified abundant evidence of pre-contact Innu occupations. Amongst the first discoveries was what is arguably the oldest archaeological assemblage in northern Labrador dated to between 7,200 and 7,500 before the present.

On Sept 14th 2005 Innu Mikun pilots Noel Bennett and Dwayne Blake made the first landing at the new airstrip at Kamestastin. The previously used strip on the south side of Kamestastin lacked the necessary firmness for heavily laden twin otter aircraft and had become rutted. It was finally declared unsuitable for wheeled landings. Tshikapisk was fortunate in locating an esker much closer to the camp which although shorter than the former strip was made of gravel and allowed landings by twin otters without the shortcomings of its predecessor.
