Video Shot in: 2022

Yves Brower, a water management professional in Utqiaġvik (formerly Barrow), Alaska, had a successful spring whale hunt. The community caught 16-17 small whales and enjoyed abundant muktuk (whale blubber) and festive celebrations. Yves reflects on the friendly and family-oriented atmosphere in Utqiaġvik, where neighbors treat each other like relatives. While he loves his job, Yves contemplates a potential career change to the wildlife department.
