Amazing ESPN’s 30 for 30 Short | I Am Yup’ik

Basketball is life in this town, the  mixture of two cultures, and a really interesting journey  starts on Nelson Island School in Toksook Bay, Alaska where the weather and life conditions are somehow extreme.

A 16-year-old Alaskan Yup’ik teenager leaves his tiny village and travels across hundreds of miles of frozen tundra to compete in a basketball tournament and bring pride to his village.
