Description

Gelatin print; group of Inuit men, women, and children; handwritten on rear "Kog-mul-luk natives May 1895." This photo was possibly taken by Captain John A. Cook.

Please note, we are unsure of the meaning of the term "Kog-mul-luk," which is used here in quotations, taken directly from the handwritten primary source material. It is likely a designation for a specific indigenous group and might refer to the region they inhabited.
