Illustration from Narrative of a journey to the shores of the Polar Sea, by John Franklin (London, 1823).
John Franklin (1786-1847) British Naval officer and exporer was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1823. In 1819 he was chosen to lead the Coppermine Expedition overland from Hudson Bay to chart the North Coast of Canada.
A side party led by Lieutenant Robert Hood (1797-1821) spent time observing the customs of the local Cree population.
The Cree are one of the largest groups of First Nations people in North America. Depending on the community, the Cree may refer to themselves by any of the following names: nēhiyawak, nīhithaw, nēhilaw, and nēhinaw; or ininiw, ililiw, iynu, or iyyu.
