Storyboard Text

  • Nya and her little sister, Akeer, ended up in a refugee camp with many people in the dreaded heat.
  • "There was only heat, the sun already baking the air, even though it was long before noon" (Park, pg. 1).
  • Nya and Akeer are eventually adopted by an American family, and come to live in their house near the oil polluted Yellowstone River.
  • "The oil spill 'threatens downstream water users, including drinking water supplies'"(Wendy Koch, National Geographic)
  • Against her foster parents' wishes, Nya and Akeer walk to the polluted river every day to get drinking water and to keep their original culture in their life.
  • Nya and Akeer are always upset and surprised about the growing amount of oil in the water.
