I am Yup’ik


Young Native Alaskans in rural villages face unique challenges due to physical isolation and the loss of traditional cultural support. Unifying projects or activities—such as basketball— can provide a lifeline for youth and communities

Students will watch a film, “I Am Yup’ik” about a 16-year-old named Byron Nicholai, a basketball player who lives in a tiny village in western Alaska and explore themes of identity, resilience, and youth empowerment.
