In 1895, an Inuit named Wetalltok sketched the above map of the unknown Belcher Islands on the back of an old missionary lithograph. Explorers doubted such a large land mass could exist so close to the centuries-old post at Great Whale River yet remain unknown. But an expedition of 1912-16 showed Wetalltok’s map to be strikingly accurate.
