Anyone who’s ever traveled on and off the island knows how expensive it is to come and go. For Puni Timu, that price tag has kept her from seeing her parents for more than a year and a half while away at college. Puni went to Kodiak High School where she was a star player on the girl’s basketball team. When she graduated, she signed with the University of Jamestown’s basketball team in North Dakota. It’s been a long time since Puni last saw her parents and her teammates recently decided to something extraordinary for their Alaskan comrade. See the emotional video here.
