The Anthropology of Community-Based Whaling in Greenland

A Collection of Papers Submitted to the International Whaling Commission

Greenland's Inuit have for generations depended upon the hunting and sharing of whales to fulfill their needs. Yet their ability to continue their tradition in an ecologically responsible and sustainable manner is threatened by those opposed to the killing of whales. Contributions deal with various aspects of the whale hunt and the economic, social, cultural, historical, nutritional, and spiritual importance and significance of whales and whaling to Greenlandic Inuit. Chapters by: Moses Olsen; R. Petersen, E. Lemke, And F. O. Kapel; P. Hems, O. Hertz, and F. O. Kapel; Robert Petersen; Fin B. Larsen; Janne Jervin, Jens Dahl, Peder Helms, and Robert Petersen; Svend E. Larsen and Klaus G. Hansen; Erling Josefsen; Richard A. Caulfield;

About the Authors

Marc Stevenson has for over 20 years worked with Aboriginal groups, universities, governments, NGOs, and industrial proponents on a broad range of issues affecting Aboriginal communities across Canada. With degrees in anthropology and archaeology, he has addressed many of the environmental, social, political, economic and cultural issues and challenges facing Canada's First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples. His work among the Inuit in the 1980s led to research outlining the structure of Inuit social organization. More recently, his research interests have shifted towards issues of traditional ecological knowledge, co-management, economic development, social and environmental impact assessment, and Indigenous rights. Marc Stevenson has developed considerable expertise in and knowledge about the linkages among environment, society, and economy in Aboriginal communities. He is particularly noted for his research on traditional knowledge, indigenous management systems, co-management, traditional economy and sustainable development.
