"The Copper Inuit of the Coronation Gulf region of Canada's Northwest Territories were among the last aboriginal groups to be contacted by people from outside, mainly during the early years of the 20th century. When Doctor R.D. Martin arrived in Coppermine in 1929, he had to deal with one of the consequences of that contact, a tuberculosis epidemic" - from National Film Board of Canada video "Coppermine" (1992)
