Traditional Whaling in the Western Arctic
This web page, endorsed by the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission (AEWC) is designed to provide information about indigenous subsistence whaling in the Western Arctic in a historical context that extends from pre- European contact to the present. The focus is on the traditional whaling practices of northern Alaskan communities, and on the environmental conditions in which whaling has taken - and continues to take - place. This site is intended to provide information to a wide range of audiences, including people living in the Arctic, students, the general public, and people conducting research in the North.
