Inuk guide

AT-Ang-E-La, Eskimo guide employed by the explorers Han-bury and Tyrell. He was lost with a government prospector in 1909. He made two lone trips between Amundsen’s Ship “Ghoa,” King Williams Land, with dogs to the Government Steamer “Arctic,” wintering at Fullerton Harbour in 1904-1905. He brought the first news from Amundsen and carried back mail from the “Arctic.”
