Alaskans video chat with smart phones, pay bills with strokes on a keyboard, turn off lights with virtual assistants and yet remarkably, 3,300 rural households still use five-gallon honey buckets as toilets. While futuristic innovations have become commonplace, thousands of Alaskans are living in homes without running water or proper sanitation. This must change. Those who live in rural Alaska deserve better.
