Whaling in Alaska

In this Oct. 7, 2014, photo, Crawford Patkotak carries a harpoon attached to a buoy after his crew landed a bowhead whale, as the whale is hauled ashore in a field near Barrow, Alaska. Most members of a whaling family pitch in once a whale is caught. Often, three generations of a whaling family are at the task of butchering and dividing the whale. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull)
