"Often when I prepared country food, my hands fully covered in blood, I would think that those who garden in the South must feel the same, their hands covered in the soil in which their vegetables grow. Source is source, whether it is the blood of the animals we hunt and eat, or the soil in which we grow our food. All comes from the same place." (p. 137) "... I told [a] filmmaker that I would have him eating 'muttaq' [whale skin with a layer of blubber below] before he left. He quickly responded, 'Oh, I can't do that. I have too much of an affinity for dolphins and whales to eat them.' Without a second thought, I responded, 'Ah, but we [Inuit] too have an affinity for whales, which is why we eat them.'" (p. 248)
