Bowhead & Beluga whales

The new Majik Imaje Logo depicting the harmony that exists between the Inupiaq culture & the whales.

A tradition that is many thousands of years old- has to be respected– The entire life of the Inupiaq people revolves around the whale – in some books; you will hear that these people “worship the whale” !!

It takes one whole year – just to get ready to go whaling  for the spring hunt.

It takes a great deal of time and effort to hunt for six new Oogruk to obtain the necessary skins needed to cover one umiaq.  Old skins must be scraped & cleaned, All paddles must have a new finish applied to them. Caribou,Ducks, Fishing are all done at different times of the year.  Point Hope is the ONLY VILLAGE, that still does whaling in the old traditional manner.

 

Bowhead
by Charlie Hopson, Inupiat whaler
Silently I move toward destiny.
Quietly, you, Inupiat, await my destiny.
I can hear you as I move under the ice.
I can see you as I surface.
Together we wait.
Both know what the other thinks.
Although we live in different worlds,
We exist for each other.
I move towards you Inupiat,
Because it is my destiny.
Quietly I approach you.
Silently you move towards me.
I give you your culture.
I give myself, Bowhead Whale.
 
“The Inupiat never boast they have caught a whale. They receive a whale, and they do so humbly. They believe that the whale chooses to sacrifice itself, that if a hunter creates a place pleasing to the animals, it will choose to die there and tell the others to come next year. Nothing logical about animal behavior or natural selection can shatter this belief, it is so deeply felt among the Inupiat. Doubting it would be akin to blasphemy, an abandonment of their heritage.”

FLOYD DAVIDSON – Barrow’s Pathological LIAR !!

FLOYD ?   It is obvious to EVERYONE – you are a pathological LIAR !!

On city data- Everyone that  lives in Barrow is wrong – You are the only person in the arctic that knows the truth – WOW!  ARE  YOU THAT STUPID ??

In 3 years time – you haven’t supplied one shred of EVIDENCE; – furthermore; not one person has ever come forward to substantiate your claims;  No!! not even one;

ELDERS in Barrow are tired of your puffed up lies and deceit.

YOU CLAIM: you are a professional photographer with 40 years experience – your web site says the exact opposite. All it takes – for anyone to simply discern the ‘truth’ – GO VISIT FLOYDS WEB SITE –  His ‘apparent lack of ” SKILLS is extremely obvious !!  Why must you lie & attempt to alter the truth – consistently & constantly about so many different subjects ??

How?? did you outrun a polar bear floyd ??  THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE !!  That bear can run 40 mph !! you can’t run period, you can’t even walk to pepi’s !! People that weigh 350 pounds can’t run floyd –  they “waddle” !!!

Why do you lie constantly about so many different things and events here in Barrow ?? EVERYONE in this village is well aware of your concocted made up conversations you have had with Bill Hess that are easily proven false.

BILL HESS himself contradicts your bullshit lies !!!  Page two of Gift of the Whale clearly demonstrates how far you go to outright make up things that are not true and are called LIES !!

YOU LIED AGAIN – about what happened out on the ocean ice in Barrow in 1991.  You claimed (you heard the story) You called a person (The EMT) that was there.  He told you – TWO PEOPLE DIED –  you posted that only one person died from getting hit in the chest.  FACT:  two women died (just as I said) because their heads were smashed and crushed by the block & tackle. TOO MANY PEOPLE in Barrow say this is true.  TOO MANY PEOPLE IN BARROW INSIST : your a pathological LIAR !!  Gage Saxon(son of EMT).  says your a liar – Eli Kagak – says your are a liar – the natives of Barrow INSIST you are a liar !

WE DO NOT WANT YOU IN THIS VILLAGE SPREADING MORE LIES – and always patting yourself on the back.

you run to the moderators in many web sites and complain and cry like a little baby when someone (anyone) opposes your one sided lop sided lying views !!

YOU HAVE MUCH TO BE PROUD OF FLOYD DAVIDSON;  how many lies do we have to catch you in ???

I have one question mr. almighty.   I posted an impressive photo essay(s) on City Data – four of them to be exact, ALL FOUR WERE CLOSED:  ( due to your insistence) that I am not telling the truth.

QUESTION: ??  IN my photo essay on Point Hope – you said – IT IS ALL TRUE – but then you went on to CLAIM – it is all exaggerated and misleading.   YOU HAVE ADMITTED IN THE PAST TO PEOPLE HERE:  You have never been to Point Hope.  QUESTION –   How could you possibly know what is false or true ??  I have quoted what I have experienced and told by the elders.  – it is ALL 100% TRUE !!   Why do you think the North Slope Borough School District has been linked to my site for almost ten years UNDER TEACHER RESOURCES  ????   MY STORIES ARE 100% ACCURATE !!!

I have a well published documented  track record of my work being published in many magazines and books and such. What do you have to show floyd ??  NOTHING !!! You a professional  photographer?   LIAR !! LIAR !! LIAR !!

YOU HAVE TO MAKE UP lies – you actually outran a polar bear  ??   Floyd you couldn’t run 8 feet – that is physically IMPOSSIBLE for any person with your BUILD !!   That much weight is impossible to move (quickly).

You claim – Carl Stalker in Point Lay did not get eaten by a polar bear – I POSTED THE NEWSPAPER article to PROVE IT.   WHAT HAVE YOU POSTED FLOYD ??  nothing but lies and narcissistic ramblings !!!

YOU POSTED THESE WORDS;  NO western observer has noticed any form of government in Point Hope before 1970.

How would you know that ?  You were not even up here then –

YOU READ IT FROM A BOOK;   and it is FALSE

FACT:  Inside the Native Village of Point Hope – the walls are adorned with framed photographs of tribal government in action – during the 1950’s !!!!  Point Hope drafted their CONSTITUTION in 1934 !!  With Western Observers present – with photographs.

I posted a truly stunning image:  created using a toy 200 dollar camera – JUST TO PROVE A POINT

FLOYD ??  What type of mind altering drugs are you hooked on ??

You claim the only reason I use a panasonic is that is all we can afford?  FLOYD ??? ASK ANYONE IN BARROW – we made tooo much money DAILY from selling bracelets and ear-rings.  We were #1 !! Go ask Charlotte Brower – she spent over $7,000 in one week for 25 bracelets !!

I DO NOT HAVE TO LIE…  .. FLOYD – you haven’told the TRUTH about one subject in over 3 years time.. False assumptions and puffed up presumptions are your trademark. iN EVERY FORUM you present yourself as the all knowning  King of “truth” – you are obsessed with the same devil as Obama – everything is doublespeak – the exact opposite of the truth. Four great photo essay’s on City Data were closed all because you kept crying to the moderators that I was lying and  then we find out the truth –  that is why you were banned twice from that  great forum! YOU just have to lie to achieve your goals.

Well everyone at Alaska Outdoors Forum now see’s the simple truth of who this PRETENDER really is.  He cannot answer a simple question.   Floyd do you do photography as a living ? or as a hobby.  NOTICE THE 500 WORD ANSWER .. A bunch of double talk that doesn’t say anything !!

FLOYD IS :  truely a “wind up  – bobble head – TOY” !!   The reasons are more than obvious !!

When a ? person ? has to copy & paste responses from other forums to attempt to impress people with a bunch of technical non-sense NOT BASED ON PERSONAL EXPERIENCE(s).  THAT is a sad sick individual indeed !!

The bible says:  Satan is the FATHER of ALL LIARS – I know for a fact: your father is very proud of you – I wonder how your mother feels about your behavior??

You posted: David Eves got kicked out of Barrow and was given a Blue Ticket.   THAT IS FALSE

You posted: David Eves got a blue ticket and was kicked out of Point Hope also –  this also is a total lie

When Starlite9 and Stiffnecked asked you to back up your claims – their comments were erased; I pressed the issue – you complained to the many different moderators you CRY TO; the thread was closed; my comments erased.

A BLUE TICKET is reserved for convicted felons that present a DANGER to the community  !!

THAT INFORMATION: is published in the Arctic sounder and in other public newspapers !!

In other words, simply put;  FLOYD MANUFACTURED ANOTHER TOTAL LIE (twice).  This doesn’t surprise me one bit as floyd has accused the Barrow Whaling Captains of FELONIES also.

Here is Floyds statement:  Fall whaling is nothing special; 3 or 4 people go out and shoot a whale.

YOU; can’t see the ‘crime’ here.  Only an Eskimo WILL SEE IT IMMEDIATELY and become extremely upset !!

First of all, as many as ten different crews go out for fall whaling;  each crew has 8 members !  (no crime). It is against the law; a felony to ‘shoot’ a bowhead whale.  That act will land a whaling captain in Jail.

The traditions and customs of these people are very sacred and essential to their survival.  A whale is a GIFT.

A bowhead whale must FIRST BE harpooned (kappii) (cup pea).  Only then, may a shoulder gun be used. Many very important and influential Elders & Whaling Captains are visibly upset over this one person’s lopsided views about this culture.

 

GO AWAY FLOYD – no one is impressed with someone that  has  to make up stuff to get peoples attention.
