"You can never replace the caribou": Inuit experiences of ecological grief from caribou declines.
(American Imago, 2020)
Oh, the first time I heard there was gonna be a ban on [hunting] caribou, it was just awful, right? I just couldn’t believe it; it was like oh no, right? This can’t be true, but it was. You had to accept that it was true. And knowing you’re not allowed to even kill them anymore, ban and all that, it’s just really hard. We felt it was really hard on the people, right? And really hard on myself. Definitely, definitely hard.
— Morris Jacque, Postville
Your mind goes back to how exciting it was to see those tracks... but it plays on your mind.
