KABLOONAS

Kabloonas is the way in which the Inuit who live in the north part of Canada call those who haven´t their same ascendency.

The first time i read this word was in the book "Fatal Passage" by Ken McGoogan, when, as the result of the conversations between John Rae and some inuit, and trying to find any evidence of the ill-fated Sir John Franklin Expedition, some of then mentioned that they watched how some kabloonas walked to die in the proximities of the river Great Fish.

I wish to publish this blog to order and share all those anecdotes that I´ve been finding in the arctic literature about arctic expeditions. My interest began more than 15 years ago reading a little book of my brother about north and south pole expeditions. I began reading almost all the bibliography about Antarctic expeditions and the superknown expeditions of Scott, Amundsen, Shackleton, etc. After I was captured by the Nansen, Nobile and Engineer Andree. But the most disturbing thing in that little book, full of pictures, was the two pages dedicated to the last Franklin expedition of the S.XIX, on that moment I thought that given the time on which this and others expeditions happened, few or any additional information could be obtained about it. I couldn´t imagine that after those two pages It would be a huge iceberg full of stories, unresolved misteries, anecdotes, etc. I believe that this iceberg, on the contrary than others, would continue growing instead melting.

  1. Yes it is wonderful, but it´s not my finding, several persons put the link in the facebook site and I wanted to share it with all of you.

    Russell put a long time ago in his blog a part of this map and the links to the site where a lot of digitalized maps are:

    http://visionsnorth.blogspot.com.es/2009/11/digitized-arctic-charts-at-library.html

    The author of it is the Commander Rupert Thomas Gould. I think that with this map in one hand and with the book "Unravelling the Franklin mistery" in the other (as I am going to do soon) you can spend hours trying to get an idea of what happened there.

  4. Nice and informative channel. Once again, Bitcoin has bounced back and is currently trading slightly above $60,000 support zone against the US Dollar and the bulls are so much in charge to see btc to $65,000 and ahead. Its still a great time to day trade with the little you hold and its not still late to buy little btc and grow your portfolio as i have been doing with Mr Carlos Wilfred for the past 6 weeks now and i came to understand that you can make profit from the market at anytime and its even profitable when btc is bullishing so your portfolio can grow too. Mr Carlos Wilfred signals are so accurate and yields lots of profits, using his signals has made me 5.34 btc with my initial 0.7 btc which you all traders/investors will see is profitable. This is the most beneficial means of trading as experienced and he can be contacted via telegram @iebinaryfx or Gmail (investandearnbinaryfx@gmail.com) for inquiries
