A Whale Hunt. The remarkable story of an Indian tribe’s quest to regain it ancient rituals in the modern world. Robert Sullivan. 2001 1st edition. Headline, London


Whaling has been part of the traditions of the Makah tribe living at Neah Bay in the Northwestern tip of the USA but the tribe stopped whaling in the 1920s because whales were becoming scarce
Now that whale numbers have increased the tribe decided to resume their traditional ancient practices of whaling, giving thanks for the whales, then eating them
However, as a whole generation had not hunted whales, there was controversy surrounding the issue
Here is the true story of how the tribe managed to hunt and catch a whale, in spite of no living person actually knowing how to do this, then the traditional feast which followed
