Re: Whale Wars


  I watched a show on Inuit whale hunts.
They are allowed a certain number of bowhead whales each year to feed their families.

  No big ships, just men in open boats. One year they stopped hunting before official season closed. Government researcher asked an elder why. His answer was priceless. "We have enough to feed the village this year and the whales asked our shaman to stop the hunt for now".
 Can't argue with a polite request like that.

  I have a beef with the Japanese. They are suppose to be so in tune with nature and all, but are the first to over-fish and cut down Indonesian rain forests to make disposable fastfood chopsticks.

Re: Whale Wars


I love the traditional, old way Inuit'[sign in to see URL] people. Though the younger generations are having problems and that is very sad...
