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).

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.
