Whale Float

The Akootchook Crew is packing their whaling camp gear, the skin boat and the motor boat in preparation to set up the whaling camp out on the ice. (They use the motor boats when they have to chase the whale after they harpoon it).

Notice these are mostly young members of the crew!

So far, Marchie Nageak Crew and Oyagak Crew caught a whale. I have no pictures though. Our crew sent the young ones to go and help butcher the whales and no camera.
