Offshore development brings 'life-and-death issues' to the Last Frontier

GIRDWOOD, Alaska -- The Yup'ik Eskimo people of Alaska's St. Lawrence Island, a 90-mile-long piece of land in the middle of the Bering Sea, are at a crossroads in their long history. For 2,000 years, they've lived on the island, a remnant of the Bering land bridge that once linked Asia and North America. Now, as oil development begins in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas, the people of St. Lawrence Island, like other Natives throughout Alaska, are seeking an increased voice in the federal and state plans for their future.
