The Anthropology of Community-Based Whaling in Greenland : A Collection of Papers Submitted to the International Whaling Commission Hardback

Edited by Marc G. Stevenson, Andrew D. Madsen, Elaine Maloney

Part of the Occasional Publications Series series

Description

Greenland's Inuit have for generations depended upon the hunting and sharing of whales to fulfill their needs.

Yet their ability to continue their tradition in an ecologically responsible and sustainable manner is threatened by those opposed to the killing of whales.

Contributions deal with various aspects of the whale hunt and the economic, social, cultural, historical, nutritional, and spiritual importance and significance of whales and whaling to Greenlandic Inuit.
