The Whale Hunt

Hosted by


Visual artist Jonathan Harris goes on an incredible quest to document an Alaskan tribal whale hunt. He discusses how a group of men slay a 40 ton whale with a handheld harpoon and how whale meat sustains the Inupiat Eskimos for a year. Harris details his Alaskan experience on his website, The Whale Hunt. He is a polymath who combines elements of computer science, anthropology, visual arts and storytelling. To learn more about his other fascinating work, you can visit his Number 27 web site.
