eskimo power

Instagram this is a peek into the life of a yup'ik eskimo hunter. i have a conscience--don't get me wrong, but sometimes i operate without one. crazy? maybe. blood thirsty savage? most definitely.

We picked up my #walrus tusks today. The tusks fell off the skull. They’ve been in a swampy lake for two years. #kotzebue #summer

Anonymous said: How much does a typical seal weigh? How long does one last for a typical family to eat?

a typical ugruk, or bearded seal, weighs about 500 pounds?  we don’t usually weigh our catch.

a typical spotted seal weighs about 150 pounds?  we don’t usually weigh our catch.

a typical ringed seal weighs about 120 pounds?  again, we don’t usually weigh our catch so I don’t have accurate figures for you.

it takes a few months for a family to consume a whole seal.  there’s seal meat and seal blubber that is rendered to an oil—hence the term ‘seal oil.’  many families take the seal skin/fur and make something nice to wear, like a hat or gloves.  there are even pimped out seal skin parkas! 

i love seal.  hope this answer your questions.  have a good day!

we have a cool president.  and a cool first lady!
don’t cha think?
