Is it important for Eskimo’s to be able to hunt and fish whatever they want?

    This is a matter of debate, but many countries like the US allow Inuit populations to continue their traditional hunting methods. Inuit villages have been publicly criticized for their continued hunting of endangered bow head whales, but what people don’t understand is that the Inuit people were not responsible for depleting their numbers. Eskimo hunters only take about one whale a year, and every single part of these whales are used or given away to neighboring tribes. The problem with the rich arctic waters is that they are rich with food resources which countries, also like the US have been quick to exploit, crippling natural ecosystems and endangering species like the bow head whale. Eskimos are not the problem, the over harvesting of marine animals by commercial fisheries is the problem.
