is for real! Historically, the shoreline of Saint Lawrence Island is sheathed in sea ice that forms throughout the winter and melts in the summer, but the sea ice never formed completely in the winter and spring of 2018-2019, due to the warming climate. ▫️ This has created new challenges for the Yup’ik people, for whom subsistence hunting is a primary source of food and identity. The Yup'ik have been hunting and fishing the Bering Sea for thousands of years, with walrus being a staple of their diet. The walrus herds were decimated by whalers in the 1800s, but have since rebounded, only now they are newly threatened by the retreating sea ice, and the hunting season for walrus has grown shorter as well. ▫️ Photographer @kiliiiyuyan traveled to Saint Lawrence Island last spring to work with indigenous youth on an art therapy project to address suicide in their community.

Gambell, Alaska

The Alaskan village of Gambell on Saint Lawrence Island still suffers from the residual effects of colonialism. When American whalers arrived in the region in the mid-1800s, they brought deadly diseases to the region and hunted marine mammals that the indigenous Yup’ik community subsisted on to near extinction. ▫️ The Yup’ik population was decimated. When their community began to rebound, the children were forced by the U.S. government into boarding schools, where any use of their native languages and cultural practices was severely punished. An entire generation was subjected to physical and sexual abuse and cultural genocide. ▫️ Today the Yup’ik on Saint Lawrence Island face new obstacles: a continued reliance on the market economy, as seasonal hunting is interrupted by a warming climate, cancer from pesticides making their way up the food chain, and ongoing issues with drug and alcohol abuse. In 2012, the annual suicide death rate for Alaska Native youth was 18 times higher than that of American youth overall. ▫️ Photographer @kiliiiyuyan visited Gambell last year to work with high school students on an art therapy project aimed at suicide prevention in this community of around 700 people.

Gambell, Alaska

A basketball court sits empty in the village of Gambell, Alaska, on Saint Lawrence Island in the middle of the Bering Sea. Many youth in the community told photographer @kiliiiyuyan that the recent suicide of a friend who loved the game has kept them away from the court. ▫️ Yuyan traveled to Gambell in March of 2018 to create a suicide-prevention program at the local high school, using a mask-making project as a form of art therapy. This area has suffered considerable intergenerational trauma from the effects of colonialism and a high rate of suicide. The project was intended to serve as a socially acceptable way for the teens to talk about pent-up emotions. ▫️ Part of Yuyan’s vision was to photograph the students wearing their masks in places that brought them closer to their griefs and joys. For grief, several students led him to the basketball court pictured here. “Standing in that place,” Yuyan wrote, “I could feel the pain carried by the students, as well as their fortitude in facing that pain.” View the full photo essay by visiting the link in our bio. ▫️ Photo: @kiliiiyuyan #masksofgriefandjoy
