Our Northland, Its People and Resources

Some of the resources of Canada. An appeal to the audience as public-spirited citizens of the Empire to try to protect and perpetuate those resources. The Eskimo of Northern Canada: features of their culture. The market for caribou skins in Alaska. The fate of the caribou, similar to that of the buffalo. Reasons for the diametrically opposed policy of the Hudson's Bay Company from that of the American Government with regard to the Indian. Protecting the Eskimo and his way of life. An intelligent quarantine. The speaker's plans for another expedition. A look back at the speaker's first two expeditions. Details of the plans for the third expedition. Hope of finding new land north of Canada. Ascertaining the oceanic depths, investigating the geology of the country, and determining the range of the prehistoric migrations of the Eskimo. A plea from the speaker to the audience to do something intelligent for the Eskimo to preserve his way of life, and his life.
