In 1897, Arctic explorer Robert Peary brought a group of Eskimos to New York City. A young boy named Minik was among them. After several of the Eskimos died, Minik was horrified to realize that their skeletons — including that of his own father — had become part of the collection of the Museum of Natural History. In his new book, author Kenn Harper tells the story of the Eskimos’ long fight to retrieve the remains.
