Ed's Arctic Trip / 26whale

This is probably a bowhead whale, but it might be a humpback. The natives hunt the bowhead which live in the vicinity of St. Lawrence Island. One whale can provide a village with food and materials such as hide, bone, and oil for a year. Villages have several hunting boats, each boat is a team with a leader. If a boat brings back a whale, they are heros (which makes sense, because they are effectively keeping everyone fed!)
