Whales Have Been Here Forever

We made them endangered

“Whales have been here forever. Their flesh has fed the people and been the occasion for celebration and feasting. Their bones have been made into tools and objects of status and ceremonial importance. The sighting of a whale still thrills all who see it.
May it always be so!”

Robert Kentta,
Cultural Resources Director
Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians

Whales have been here

“We made them endangered. Now we must discover their needs and change our behavior to assure their survival.”
