Children play on empty fuel containers outside the village of Savoonga, Alaska on Monday, April 25, 2011. There are few structured recreational opportunities for youth in Savoonga, which is one of the causes cited for the abnormally-high suicide rate among Savoonga youth. The suicide rate for Alaska Natives is over twice that of Alaska non-natives, and almost four times that of the US average. (image by Loren Holmes)
