Attorneys at Law .. .. !

I received this in the mail, two copies, one certified and one without certification, they want to be sure that I have read their letter. I will post this here for ALL to see what is happening in Point Hope,  The truth is sometimes not tolerated by some people. Thus the following letter will make it clear who wrote this letter and why they are threating me with a law suit..

I have no problem ever, admitting when I am wrong, Some people can’t ever admit the truth or admit when they are wrong.


It seems that my freedom of speech guaranteed by the FIRST amendment of the Constitution, is being challenged,  My experience of what is documented and easily proven is also the ‘target’ of this letter telling me to STOP TELLING THE TRUTH !!   (notice the language in this letter)   ‘remove the false statments. ‘


Nothing I have typed is false, I can PROVE beyond any shadow of doubt that what I have typed is the truth and I can prove it..  SOMEONE is about to make the biggest fool out of them selves trying to say I have misrepresented the truth !!  I have a very fair unbiased, person,  about to solve this whole issue.  Upon receipt of this letter, I made one phone call and spoke with an ‘agent’ for over 1 hour.

When a financial report is published and it is full of errors, & mistakes, that makes me think and wonder .. .. why ??  So one phone call to a friend in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Now lets see if I am the one telling the truth or not.  I have spoken to the Attorney General for over an hour and expressed my concerns in full.   The AG agrees that something is wrong here and it needs to be investigated throughly !! Other important people in this village, have been compiling evidence & documentation, over a long span of years, complete documentation is available and will be published.  The overwhelming majority of the sharholders want this person out of office. A.S.A.P. – The people of Point Hope need outside help to make this a reality, the shareholders are discusted and have finally banded together to make this possible !! 


First read the letter(s). then I will address each and every concern.  Be it known that in the United States we enjoy freedom of speech !! and.. .. since when can you take someone to court.. for telling the truth ???

I have ‘family’ & relatives in Point Hope, and many have expressed sincerce thanks for bringing this issue to light.. I will gladly go to court !!  NO PROBLEM !!   I have proven everything I have typed and I will post all the proof necessary here to PROVE that I have told the truth about each and every issue.


High in the Arctic Eskimo  .. . has been posted on over 58 forums all over the internet.  It was a lot of very hard work and it is a photo essay about the Inupiaq people(s).  It is a labor of love that this was written and with all photo-documentation of living on the ocean ice and subsistence lifestyle.  The incredible positive feedback from thousands of people all over the world attests to the popularity of this thread.

I have also noticed that some people ‘just can’t read’ and understand simple sentences and twist the truth about what I have typed, It is obvious by the ‘false’ claims in this letter !

So let it be known to all involved that I .. (David J. Eves) and a vast majority of the shareholders are willing to back up my claims in a court of law.!!..  ..  … with overwhelming evidence !

1981-1983  I worked at fixing the ‘meltdown’ of the main electric panel in Point Hope Native Store.  I was not paid. Proof was provided to the Chief Financial Officer.. he wanted to pay me  Rex said NO !

1996- 2002 I had to chase around in circles to get a settlement from Tikigaq for ‘stealing’ my photos and making phone calling cards.

2003 – 2005  I had to file a claim with Alaska Wage & hour for wages that again were not paid. It is all on record, Tikigaq corporation said, INSISTED, I was not even in the village !! I did no work ! It took two years to win this settlement..  3 times I have to chase this corporation for payment of wages !!  It is all on record.  It is a matter of FACT !!!

That ‘track record’ speaks for itself !! –


It is ALL the result of one childish, selfish,  self-centered, individual !!  It has nothing to do with Tikigaq Corporation !!

 My goal is to get this whole affair into court, and expose the fraudulent method in which I have been treated, three times complete with documentation. I am suing for the untold stress and hardships I have to endure, .. .. .. just to collect my proper wages.. .. on three occasions!!  that FACT plus the overwhelming majority of the shareholders that want this type of behavior STOPPED. But these facts are nothing compared what is about to be revealed.. .. .. in court !!



Bush’s polar bear decision challenged !

Two conservation groups filed a lawsuit on Tuesday challenging the Bush administration’s decision to let oil companies unintentionally harass or harm polar bears and walruses off the northwestern Alaska coast.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Anchorage claims that federal officials violated laws designed to protect the animals and their sensitive habitat in the Arctic waters of the Chukchi Sea.

“These regulations set the parameters for how oil exploration will be done in the next five years,” said Brendan Cummings, oceans program director at the Center for Biological Diversity, which filed the suit along with Pacific Environment. “The Chukchi Sea is critical habitat for those animals. For them to survive in the face of global warming, we simply cannot allow oil development there.”

A polar bear watches a whaling crew off shore near Barrow, Alaska. Pacific Environment and the Center for Biological Diversity filed a lawsuit July 8 alleging that federal officials violated laws designed to protect polar bears and walruses and their sensitive habitat in the Arctic waters of the Chukchi Sea.

A polar bear watches a whaling crew off shore near Barrow, Alaska. Pacific Environment and the Center for Biological Diversity filed a lawsuit July 8 alleging that federal officials violated laws designed to protect polar bears and walruses and their sensitive habitat in the Arctic waters of the Chukchi Sea.

Last month, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decided to grant legal protection to seven oil companies in the Chukchi over the next five years should they accidentally harm “small numbers” of polar bears or Pacific walruses while drilling or during other exploratory activities. The agency is named as a defendant in the suit, along with Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne.
Fish and Wildlife Service officials said oil and gas exploration will have a negligible effect on the bear and walrus populations. Global warming is most likely to cause the animals’ numbers to dwindle, the agency said.

Under the harassment permits, oil companies are required to report all sightings of polar bears and walruses, Fish and Wildlife spokesman Bruce Woods said. The agency treats such reports as valuable data because research in the remote region is often prohibitively expensive.

“Our biologists feel this regulation program is a valuable conservation tool,” Woods said. “The companies have to report every sighting and what measures they took to avoid disturbing the animals and what the response was. They give us information on the location and actions of the animals that we might not otherwise have.”

About 2,000 of the 25,000 polar bears in the Arctic live in and around the Chukchi Sea, where the government in February auctioned off oil leases to Shell Oil Co., ConocoPhillips Co., and five other companies for $2.6 billion. Over objections from environmentalists and some members of Congress, the sale occurred before the bear was classified as threatened in May.

The groups say the Chukchi is also home to nearly the entire female population of Pacific walrus.

The agency has 60 days to respond to the lawsuit.
