Bowhead Whale Intestines
Photograph
Bowhead whale intestines wait for transport to a whaling feast where they will be cut up and eaten. Whaling captains nail their flag on top of their house to signify they've caught a whale. When the flag is up it means everyone is invited to come and join the feast. Usually a plate consists of maktak (blubber), heart, intestines, meat, gum from the whale's mouth (also known as Eskimo bubblegum), stewed fruit, Eskimo donuts (fry bread) and lots of tea.
