Ada Blackjack aboard her rescue ship, 1923.
In 1921, 23 year old Alaska Native Ada Blackjack joined an expedition to Wrangel Island north of Siberia as a cook and seamstress.  Ada and four men chosen for their expertise in science and geography survived on the island for over a year before rations ran out.  At that point, three men tried to cross the frozen Chukchi Sea for food while Ada and Lorne Knight, an ailing member of the group, stayed behind.  Lorne died in April 1923.  Ada was rescued in August 1923.  The three men who left to seek help were never heard from again.  Ada lived to age 85, living a quiet life and raising two sons.
