Little Diomede Island, containing the small Inupiat village of Inalik, is one of two small islands in the middle of the Bering Sea between the narrowest strait of water between Russia and the United States. The smaller of the two islands is part of Alaska, while the larger, uninhabited island of Big Diomede, just over two miles away, is part of Russia. The International Date Line separates these islands. The big island used to be inhabited during the cold war, and unfortunately, the populations of each island were pawns used by each side during a war that really did not have anything to do with them.
