Traditional Whale Hunt Carries On A 1,000-Year-Old Tradition

Winter means something different for the Inupiat of Alaska than it does for most.

While many worry about the cold or how they’ll get to work in the snow, the Inupiat are concerned with making sure they have enough food to feed their community through winter.

Fortunately, they have a solution.

With very basic tools and no technology, the Inupiat hunt for whale in a tradition that spans 1,000 years. Successfully catching a whale means there will be enough food while they wait for the spring.
