Report to the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission
. 12 p.
We thank the Barrow Whaling Captains Association, particularly Eugene Brower, the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission
, the City of Barrow, and the North Slope Borough for their support of this project.
This study would not have been possible without the support of the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission
(AEWC) and the Whaling Captains Associations in the AEWC communities.
They were selected by the local commissioner of the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission, with some additional recruitment through chain referral and word of mouth.
After this trip, the research team prepared a draft manuscript, which was circulated among us for review and then distributed to the participants in the interviews, the tribal councils of both Gambell and Savoonga, and the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission. This review allowed for correction of errors, addition of material that had subsequently occurred to participants, and the deletion of information incidental to the study results that the participants, the tribal councils, or the AEWC felt might be harmful to their interests.
Information sharing between this project, North Slope Borough Department of Wildlife Management, Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission
, and the Whalers Communication Center has proven beneficial.
The subsistence take of bowhead whales by Alaskan hunters is managed by the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission
(AEWC), under a quota system administered by the International Whaling Commission (IWC).
He has done a whole lot more for the Eskimo people than most of them realize....The good quota for subsistence harvests of bowhead whales that people have nowadays is due as much to him as [to] anyone, but few people realize it....[He is] an unsung hero...in the resolving of this great controversy between the International Whaling Commission, the federal government, the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission
, and so on....Harry's the guy who was in behind the scenes, who had the biggest impact of any single person.
