On a tiny peninsula, the Inuit of Tikigaq worshipped the whales they killed, evolving an elaborate system of myths and rituals to accompany the hunt. Lowenstein began to explore these in 1973 and recorded the complex tales of the elders, providing a classic text on the vanishing culture of the North Alaskan wilderness.
Tom Lowenstein worked with storytellers in Point Hope, Alaska, between 1973 and 1988. He now lives in London with his partner and two daughters. He is currently working on a study of contact in the nineteenth century between Point Hope Inuit and Euro-Americans.
