An invitation to travel through “Whale Civilization“
The kick-off for summer talks has finally arrived! For the first gathering of the season, scheduled for July 6, Christine Gilliet will present “Whale Civilization” at the Centre Archéo Topo in Les Bergeronnes.
Through images and stories garnered from her own experience, including her recent trip to Alaska, Christine Gilliet will host the evening to discuss these desert regions of the arctic tundra where Aboriginal peoples relied almost entirely on whaling to survive. From whale-bone houses to whale-skin canoes, enjoy an evening escape into a society where everything revolved around whales. Christine Gilliet is a journalist and editor. Founder of her own microentreprise Mots et Marées, she has collaborated with Whales Online for many years.
