A complaint filed..........

For example, in 1930, twelve Inupiat stated in a letter to their reindeer representative:

The struggle between the Lomen's and the Eskimos will never end until the Eskimos have been given their rights back ...We cannot stand (that) our reindeer are decreasing instead of increasing. In a few years we Eskimos will have nothing to live on. We are looking the government to uphold our rights." [Nash 1934:73]
