This video, adapted from material provided by the ECHO partners, offers a glimpse of life in three coastal communities in the United States. It begins in Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula, specifically in the village of Nanwalek, where people have learned to survive in a harsh environment. Next we travel to New Bedford, Massachusetts, to see how people have always depended on the ocean for whaling and fishing. Finally, we go to Moloka'i in Hawai'i, where people have learned to respect the ocean for what it provides its island communities.
