Product Description
English - Inupiaq Bilingual Edition. Amiqqaq is excited when his family catches a bowhead whale. As his family prepares to celebrate the traditional Iupiaq whaling feast, Amiqqaq learns about the spirit-of-the-whale. The Bowhead and the Inupiat: A Partnership

When springtime comes to the Arctic coast of Alaska and the ocean ice splits open, bowhead whales swim northward. Inupiat whalers set their white tents on the edge of the ice waiting, as they have done for centuries, for the return of the whales. The Inupiat have long shared a special bond with the bowheads. Legend tells of an Inupiaq shaman who visited the whales and learned a message of sharing and cooperation. The Inupiat believe that whales choose to give themselves to worthy whaling crews that have emulated the spirit-of-the-whale by avoiding conflict and practicing generosity. This spirituality, passed down through generations, is the same tradition followed in Whale Snow.
