Descendents of Peter Tulugarjuaq noted that when Reverend Peck came to the Arctic to convert Inuit to Christianity, he began with the leaders, who in turn converted their followers. Peter Tulugarjuaq, a well known and influential leader from Blacklead Island, was the first from his community to convert to Christianity.
