Jenkins and Romanzo 98—have a private law practice in Washington D.C., specializing in international and environmental law, and trade and the environment (*Leestefly AND **Cara, “Makah Whaling: Aboriginal Subsistence or a Stepping Stone to Undermining the Commercial Whaling Moratorium?,” Colorado Journal of Int'l Envt'l Law and Policy Colorado Journal of International Environmental Law and Policy, LexisNexis, Winter 1998,

Part IV argues that the United States has no compelling legal reasons, either internationally or domestically, to support an aboriginal quota for the Makah, because the commercial whaling moratorium supersedes the Makah's domestic rights to whale under the Treaty of Neah Bay and because the domestic implementing legislation for the moratorium constructively abrogates the Makah's treaty right to whale. In addition to these compelling legal reasons for denying the tribe's request, awarding an ASW quota to the Makah would be unwise in light of the very real possibility that the tribe intends to eventually engage in commercial whaling.
