Chapter Summary

Earl Kingik, an Inupiat subsistence whaler and hunter from Point Hope, voices the concerns of many of the native people of Alaska. He discusses how Arctic development policies have impacted and continue to impact the indigenous people. Earl Kingik advocates sustainable, responsible development of resources that does not harm the garden that is the Arctic and that is respectful of the native populations. Alaska Wilderness League helped us bring my council members to Washington, DC.
