These native Americans were inhabitants of present-day Lituya Bay, Alaska.La Pérouse took command of a French government expedition that was to search for the Northwest Passage from the Pacific side and to explore along the coasts of America, China, and Siberia, and in the South Seas. He never returned from this expedition. His two ships were wrecked on a reef near the island of Vanikoro with all hands lost, but La Perouse had sent letters back to Europe from Manila, Macao, and Australia which were edited by former army officer, Louis Antoine Milet-Mureau, and later published.Image placed horizontally on page.
