Climate change is affecting Native American lives.

In this video, Micah McCarty, a former chairman of the Makah Native American people, gathers shellfish at a craggy tip of Washington State. The oceans there are becoming more acidic. It's impacting the way shellfish cling to rocks at the wave-swept shore, so they can't hold on as well. If shellfish can't hang on, it means the Makah people, who've collected them for generations, won't have as big a harvest. Some of the Makah, including McCarty, are teaming with scientists to try to understand and solve the problem.
