 Blubber, extra-thick tissue that stores fat on some marine mammals, is an important part of the traditional diet of the Inuit. Although it's difficult to call it tasty, it has a high energy value. Nowadays, due to bans imposed on whale hunting, whale blubber is not commonly consumed. However it remains a "traditional delicacy".

A single blue whale can provide up to 50 tons of blubber.

The left-wing Inuit Ataqatigiit (Community of the People, IA) was founded in 1976 when the popularity of young radical movements in Denmark increased. One of the main goals of the party is to proclaim Greenland an independent state.
