What's Wrong in Alaska?
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Luci lives in Alaska. She has lived there her whole life. Her mom and dad live there. Her grandma and grandpa live there, too.
 
2     Luci lives in a small village. That village is called Shishmaref. It is on an island. It is part of Alaska. About 600 people live there. Most of them are Inupiaq, just like Luci.

They still fish. They still gather berries. They still pick wild greens. They like to live near the water to get what they need.
