I don't think there is really a place for society to place sanctions upon sustainable indigenous practices which have been in existence for centuries before Europeans arrived. It is one thing to prevent a large industrial complex, but much like the Macaw whaling controversy, it is not right for us to impose on indigenous practices when so much has already been disrupted on our account.

I agree. The problem, to me, is that many, but far from all indigenous tribes wants to keep their hunting rights at that they are adapting modern hunting techniques and waepons. In many cases i think i choice have to be made, Tradition or move on. You cant get both.
Then unfortunately there are some species that has been harvested so hard so not even traditional hunting can be allowed. (atleast not for a time)
Of course humans have played a large role in the extinction of animals using very primitive hunting methods so ......It is a hard question.Do as I say. Not as I do.

BTw that was about hunting rights in general. Not about this specific case. I do not know enough about the seal population in Canada to comment on this case.
