Is it appropriate for nonmembers of the Makah tribe--for example, students in your class--to evaluate the morality of the Makah whale hunt? Explain.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
No, it is not proper for outsiders to criticize the Makah tribe for hunting endangered species like the grey or humpbacked whale or for the primitive methods used for at least three reasons
1. We ourselves are not morally pure and have caused (for example) pollution, extinction of species and wars
2. The reason for the diminishing supply of whales is not the Makah tribe but rather, modern man and their efficient methods of whaling
3. The number of whales killed by the tribe is minimal
4. Unless we provide alternative sources of food and resources we cannot criticise, because we would probably do the same thing in similar circumstances.
