Season 12 Episode 8

About the Episode

Roughly 500 miles Southwest of Anchorage, Alaska, the Yup'ik village of Toksook Bay faces the Bering Sea on the coast of Nelson Island, called Qaluyaaq by the residents who speak Yugtun. The small subsistence village has been grappling with grief and a lack of mental health resources for young people after they finish school. Each spring, the town comes together for community-wide healing.
