In the photo, a group of people sings gospel hymns in their native Inupiaq. Nalukataq is a traditional celebration heralding the closing of a safe and productive whaling season. There are typically more than one Nalukataq in a season as there is a multitude of whaling crews in Barrow. That season’s harvest of whale is shared at the celebration with the community and it’s up to the whaling crews to prepare their individual celebration and feast. This is done in the interest of community and generosity.
