    It’s of my opinion that I am correct.

  2. @Solechnaya The fact that you wrote an animal getting benefited when it gets killed, doesn’t make sense.

  3. @Solechnaya 1) I’m not disrespecting these people because that’s their resource of existence.
    2) I don’t think animals should deserve to die just because human beings can taste them.
    3) It’s my opinion towards a common debate.

    How can ones opinion be wrong champ?

  4. @tjdoss

    No, you don’t know the half of it. Or maybe it’s the ‘fact’ that your world view is superior to everyone else.

    What if you were WRONG?

  5. @Solechnaya The animal doesn’t benefit. It dies. This is just another superiority theory that states that animals are inferior to human being. May be in their ability to think but not by their right to live and co-exist.

    So if there is a powerful being bigger than human beings do u think its correct if they hunt human beings for their food?

    These people are survivors and that’s all there is to it.

  6. Whale hunting is quite an overdone controversy. Face it, folks: the Inuit need and fully use the hunted whale because they respect the animal. I’m quite liberal, but find all of the anti-whaling whiners annoying. Next time you consume any other animal’s flesh, bitch-slap yourself for your self-righteousness. If I can eat beef or tuna or chicken, Inuit can eat whale.

  7. Please 99% of hunters only take what they need the only people I have a problem with are the ones that will shot an animal just to kill it. But most people only kill to eat, protect there livestock and there families.

    now this is good, because they eat what they kill, and the western people kill animals for fun and for trophies, thats bad to me

  9. @ Zorica12 its not by that its by the sun

  10. iam a inuk it is very good anyone should try

  11. Did they not eat muktuk because they thought it was gross? Or did they not really know about it? (Even though maybe they would have seen Inuit eating them…)

    They are Canadian. Narwhal not NARWHALES, go throught Northern Canada.

    i look down on western hunters and i’m not a hippie..and i do because it’s not hunting, it’s a sport to them..killing anything shouldn’t be a sport..western hunting isn’t genuine. it’s a disgrace to the animals we share the earth with..genuine hunting is a special thing..something else dies so u can live..something shouldn’t die so we can hang the head up on our walls and high five our hunting buddies..i’m not attacking u or anything, i’m just saying.

    id like to try a piece of muktuk.. I do believe in conservation and also believe in harvest.. nice video!

  18. Paul Watson must hate Inuits…

  19. where did he shoot that narwhal to kill it?
    how did they catch narwhals before guns
    and drag them out of the water w/o snowmobiles?
    Harpoons and sleds maybe?

  21. NorthernMostTours | August 26, 2010 at 3:59 am |

    This goes into the spiritual aspect of it, not just the physical.
