This July 26, 2011 photo shows Vittus Henson, 64, at his job as an equipment operator at a recycling plant in Nuuk, Greenland. Vittus Henson is the grandson of Matthew A. Henson, the black American aide to famed U.S. polar explorer Rear Adm. Robert E. Peary. Both Henson and Peary fathered sons by Inuit women in northern Greenland a century ago. Their scores of descendants have spread throughout Greenland and beyond, "exploring" their lives, in the words of one. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley) less
