From Elizabeth Anderson:
"Late 19th century curiosity in the "primitive" peoples of the world fueled the career of one of the era's most unusual lecturer-performers, Miss Olof Krarer, the Esquimaux Lady. Krarer hailed from Angmagsalik on the east coast of Greenland, a member of an isolated and diminishing tribe of about 500 blonde-haired, blue eyed natives said to be descended from Danish colonists. Cut off from the modern world and subsisting on a diet of raw meat, blood, and oil from the native fauna, the Angmagsaliks' bodies had shrunk to dwarven proportions.
