Knowledge of whale hunt denied

Makah chairman refutes defendant's court memo, says tribe didn't know about Sept. 8 whaling beforehand"The Tribal Council did not know" about the hunt before it happened, said McCarty, who was serving on the council but was not tribal chairman at the time of the incident in the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

"The whole tribe was not behind this," he said.

"There was no official approval of this hunt.

"We're not interested in rehashing the past. We're committed to moving forward."
