Native communities across Alaska are seeking a key to understanding the epidemic of suicide. It was a prominent theme at the Elders and Youth Conference held prior to the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention in Anchorage last week. "Part Land, Part Water – Always Native" was the theme, and much of the Conference focused on healing cultural trauma by reconnecting to traditional knowledge and values. One documentary takes viewers on a journey to finding that connection again.
