During Whaling

During September 3rd the whaling people always get ready at 4:00 a.m. then they leave at 6:00 a.m..Then when they catch the whale then they pray before they leave to come to Kaktovik then the little kids stand on the whale.Then they clean the whale, then they cut it up then they give it to the people that caught it.

Dear Lilly - To clean the whale it takes a matter of minutes because we use a loader to dump water on the whale. To cut the whale up it can take over 24 straight hours. The three whales we get will provide enough food for the entire town for the whole year!
