Matthew Henson's Monument


The Inuit team members pose with Matt at the North Pole. This bronze
is made in the exact design of the famous photo taken by Peary.
On the left is Matt's pal Ootah who saved Matt's life during the 1909 expedition.
His brother Egingwah, right, was also a long time friend to Matt and Peary.
