Excerpt: I wish to thank the Polar Research Board and Dr. Loren Setlow for the privilege of sharing our views regarding our homeland and the impact of quantitative science. We, the Inuit, cannot really know what a contemporary experiment means unless we understand what materials and what instruments and what sciences are involved in its design. This is why the growing edge of science is so inaccessible to our common experience in Alaska and our Circumpolar Inuit homeland. The Inuit, of the Circumpolar Region, qualify as a nation state under international law. Therefore the Inuit of Canada, Denmark, United States, and Russia have met the criteria of Article I of the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States. Our inherent rights to sovereignty as defined by longest peaceful existence have never been extinguished by the claims of discovery by the Spanish, Russians, British, Portuguese, Danes, Americans, nor Canadians. Unlike the origins of the United States, France, and Russia, the Inuit call to freedom maintains our tradition of the longest peaceful occupation, co-existence, territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Arctic since time immemorial. Based upon our self-determination and supported by International Law, we make this Declaration of Sovereignty which signifies Inuit Independence from all Anglo-European original or derivative states, and from any infringement of Inuit Sovereignty. And, therein lies the healing truth for the Inuit and for our homelands which have been threatened by quantitative science and selective enforcement of laws outside of the scope of the Constitutions of the United States, Canada, and Russia.
