Abstract:

In 1897 six Inuit boarded the Hope and traveled with Robert Peary from northwest Greenland to New York. Less than a year later, only two survived. One, an orphan, was a boy of six or seven, named Minik. This article, adapted from the book Give Me My Father'sBody: The Life and Times of Minik the New York Eskimo (Harper, 2000), discusses the role played by the American Museum of Natural History in the tragic life of the young Inuit.
