Three Inuit from Boothia Felix
This plate shows, from left to right, Shulanina, Tulluahiu (Tulluachiu) and Tiriksiu (Tirikshiu), a man and two women from Boothia Felix, now known as the Boothia Peninsula. In January 1830, Tulluahiu was fitted with a wooden leg by the carpenter on John Ross's ship Victory, while Tirikshiu helped the ship's navigator with his map of the land around the Gulf of Boothia. Plate facing p.272 of the Narrative of a second voyage in search of a north-west passage, and of a residence in the Arctic regions during the years 1829 ... 1833, by Sir John Ross (London, 1835). John Ross and his nephew James Clark Ross endured four winters trapped in the Arctic ice on an expedition to find the elusive Northwest Passage. Their first winter was spent at Felix Harbour on the eastern tip of Boothia Felix. John Ross was knighted in 1834 following his return to England.
