"Seal meat is a staple food for the Inuit people, and many of the pelts are sold to offset the extraordinary cost of hunting. Inuit are spread across extensive lands and waters, and their tiny population is faced with a disproportionate responsibility for protecting the environment. They are pushing for a sustainable way to take part in the global economy, but in opposition stands an army of well-funded activists and well-meaning celebrities who consider any seal hunting barbaric"--Container.

This film presents an excellent alternative perspective on animal rights.
It is an expose' on the hypocrisy of rich white people and shows the continuing efforts to marginalize and subdue the indigenous people of North America.
Recognize that native peoples (Lummi, Sioux, Inuit...) are the #1 threat to the status quo in the United States & Canada since judicial systems have the potential to oversee the return of lands stolen over the past few centuries.

Like everyone else, I thought it was cruel to kill those cute white baby seals. This film was a very revealing look at the impact of EU bans on seal products on the Inuit hunters. The seals were never endangered, and there numbers increased from 2 million to 8 million as a result of the ban. Besides learning how the Inuit were impacted, I also learned how easily people, including me, can be manipulated through advertising by environmental groups whose objective is sometimes to increase donations more than to help the environment and animals.
