Agomiut

A tribe of Eskimo inhabiting a region of N. Baffin land bordering on Lancaster sd., consisting of two subtribes -- the Tununirusirmiut in the W., about Admiralty inlet, and the Tununirmiut in the E., about Eclipse sd. They hunt the narwhal and the white whale in Eclipe sd., and in search of seals sometimes cross the ice on sledges to North Devon, there coming in contact with the natives of Ellesmere land.
