  Chapter X. Darwin, Charles Robert. 1909-14. The Voyage of the Beagle. The Harvard Classics
Jemmy Button was a universal favourite, but likewise passionate; the expression of his face at once showed his nice disposition.
Jemmy was short, thick, and fat, but vain of his personal appearance; he used always to wear gloves, his hair was neatly cut, and he was distressed if his well-polished shoes were dirtied.
Jemmy was now in a district well known to him, and guided the boats to a quiet pretty cove named Woollya, surrounded by islets, every one of which and every point had its proper native name.

 Jemmy Button
Jemmy Button was paid for with a mother of pearl button, hence his name.
Darwin was appalled at Jemmy's resistance to returning to England, and preferred to relate that to the presence of his "young and nice looking wife", Lassaweea.
It appears, however, that he and the others had taught their families some English and he was happy and healthier, given the disease and diet to which he had been exposed away from home.

 Jemmy Button - La Blinda Rosada - Fundación de Poetas
Así fue como Jemmy Button, salvaje canoero, conoció las mañanas brumosas sobre el Támesis, ciertos placeres cortesanos, el buen comer y el mejor sexo de las cortesanas, los placeres mentidos de una burguesía incipiente, los inútiles cubiertos, y hasta una lengua que le sirviera para algo.
Jemmy, bien vestido y peinado para la ocasión, volvió a Tierra del Fuego con el propósito ajeno de educar a sus paisanos, de inculcarles una tradición cultural que había demostrado ser tan abierta, justa y comprensiva al punto de equiparar su humanidad al brillo del botón de una chaqueta.
Jemmy Button, sin quererlo, fundó las bases de la verdadera poesía latinoamericana, tantas veces amenazada, confundida, subestimada, acosada, transculturizada.

 SAVAGE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
This is a story of genocide and man’s inhumanity to man. The destruction of the Tasmanians is a well-known example of the effects of “civilisation” upon the “savage”; the Yahgans of Tierra del Fuego met the same fate but their case is not so publicised.
In 1830 a Yahgan was bought from his uncle for the price of a pearl button and named Jemmy Button.
Jemmy was the ultimate “noble savage” perhaps, and a symbol of the British Empire’s rabid desire to conquer and convert.

Darwin noted the Fuegians aptitude for foreign languages and their excellent eyesight.

The voyage of the Beagle is re-imagined, and Darwin’s relationships with the troubled Captain Fitzroy, with the ship’s surgeon Robert McCormick, and with the repatriated Fuegian Jemmy Button, are depicted.
Button was a young Fuegian who had been brought to London years earlier, and was being returned to his own people.
Through Button’s experiences, Darwin comes to see that the notion of the noble savage promoted by Jean-Jacques Rousseau is a romantic fiction.
