Newtok, Alaska, sits on a treeless, grassy plain near where the Ningliq River meets the Bering Sea. Home to 450 Yup'ik Eskimos, Newtok is not an old place. Most families have lived there only since the 1960s. The federal government built a school there back in 1958 as a way to encourage people to move to this village from surrounding areas. A storm in October 2017 eroded away more of the shoreline here, in Newtok, Alaska, near the Bering Sea.

Winds and high tides now make the river often overflow its banks to flood the village, especially in fall. Courtesy of the Denali Commission Now “their roots are ingrained in this little village,” says resident Romy Cadiente. But climate change has put Newtok in danger. And they’ll keep rising.
