Example text

Weddell describes how, when anchored in Wigwam Cove, the Jane was approached by canoes, and how, after cautiously examining the ship, several natives came on board. The following morning, the Fuegians returned, but with different face paint, “Their appearance was as grotesque as can well be imagined; though in their estimation it was, no doubt, considered the perfection of fashion” (1825, 153). 32 A History of the British Presence in Chile The Beaufoy came to anchor, and natives also clambered aboard this ship.

Of lasting significance was an episode involving FitzRoy and the Fuegian Indians of Tierra del Fuego. He made contact with Yámana and Alacaluf Indians, and a group of the latter stole a whaleboat, which was necessary for survey work in the shallows. FitzRoy’s response was to take several hostages, all of whom escaped except for one girl and two men who seemed not to mind being on board. A fourth young man, Jemmy Button, was later added to the group. FitzRoy named the eldest (aged twenty-six), whose real name was El Leparu, York Minster, after the headland in Tierra del Fuego discovered by James Cook and described him as “a displeasing specimen of uncivilized human nature” (1838, 2).

Exactly one year later, the second great voyage set out. James Cook’s second circumnavigation on HMS Resolution lasted three years, from July 1772 to July 1775. His given objective was to search for the Great Southern Continent—an obsession of the age—despite his conviction that this was a myth. Cook’s expedition departed with HMS Resolution and HMS Adventure under Tobias Furneaux. Two astronomers and a naturalist named John Reinhold Forster were on board. They sailed into Tierra del Fuego from the west and examined the shores of the Magellan Strait and Cape Horn.
