Whaling Practices among the Makah Indians, Neah Bay, Washington State, USA

The case examines the whaling practices of the Makah Indians of Washington State. After practicing whaling for thousands of years, the Makah were forced to stop due to commercial whaling during the late 1800s and early 1900s. In the 1990s, the Makah began efforts to begin whaling again due to increased whale populations. Since their only successful whale hunt in 1999, the Makah have faced continual litigation from animal rights activists.
