Hi there! I have compiled some links (hopefully in a non-partisan light) about the Makah Nation whaling issue. I hope it may be useful to anyone interested. I think this controversy exposes the many facets of the whale-kill issue as well as the diplomacy, intelligence and good humor of the native people of North America, in the face of intolerance and ignorance.

Here are web sites of the Makah nation and some other Makah pages. Whether or not you agree or diagree with whaling I'd advise everyone to visit them for information from the Makah perspective.

Here are some recent CNN transcripts - they put the date in the links:

I have found a number of misc links relating to this issue:
