THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2001

As part of its series "Shades of Gray," The San Francisco Weekly this week features an article about the resumption of the Makah Nation's whale hunt.

The paper's series documents environmental and cultural conflicts over the gray whale. Due to worldwide non-Indian exploitation, it was once endangered but taken off the species list in 1994 by the federal government.

A year later, the tribe announced plans to hunt the whale again, after a more than 70-year hiatus. So far, the tribe has only succeeded in taking one whale.
