27 of the tribe’s 42 members die in the battle with the Aleuts, including most of the young men. Of the fifteen people left, most are old men, women, and children. This is a major problem because the young men are traditionally the ones who fish, catch birds, and build canoes. This is why Chief Kimki says women must now hunt and fish.
