"Murder?" It was already dead. It was an old whale that beached itself.
Also they are intelligent, but not that intelligent. I mean, they took it's jaw bone, but they also gave it a ceremonial and respectful burial! What
more could you ask for?
Sometimes people are very weird to me.
You don't understand my point. My point is they are people, like us. There are at least 2 forms of highly intelligent life on earth (I would also
add great apes and elephants, but there could be more), that are equally people.
Now, if you washed up on shore, would you like to have your jaw bone taken, or be cut up?
I am not saying it was criminal as such, and even if there were laws like that, would never charge indigineous people for making use of an entire
body, of a whale or something. I question the rightfulness of many laws made, for most are intrinsically illegal implying ownership of people, and
are not basic common law, thou shalt not kill, rape, murder, plunder.
This is a gray area at best, this isn't black and white, and wasn't trying to make it such.
But that, education needs to be done, with more respect for the different people inhabiting this world. They need some rights too.
