Synopsis: Modern Native Americans attempt to revitalize their
traditional whale hunt in this Brechtian exploration of culture, tradition,
and the environment. The play is split into two time frames. On one level,
the audience watches the historical background of these people and how
they lost their traditions. In the modern setting the audience sees this
group of Native Americans fiercely fighting to regain that which they have
lost. For additional information, click here.
