This Tiny, Isolated Alaska Village Is One Of The Last Of Its Kind

One of the best things about Alaska is the fact that it’s so rugged and remote. This is a state where you can still find a few communities who live completely off the land. Here’s one little village where the people live a subsistence lifestyle.

Sadly, the little village of Shishmaref may not be around much longer. Due to global warming, the town may be under water within a decade. Residents voted to move their village to the mainland last year, but haven’t yet done so. The cost is prohibitive, and they worry that they’ll lose the heritage they’ve always known.
