In a landscape as dramatic as its stories, We Breathe Again intimately explores the lives of our Alaska Native people, each confronting the impacts of historic trauma and suicide. Reflected in the northern lights and the city streetlights, from the ice roads to the asphalt, the characters battle for personal healing, hoping to break new trail for their families and their communities to follow.
Featured in We Breathe Again are the courageous stories of Keggulluk Polk, Jody Potts, Eddie Tate, and Paul Nagaruk.
Produced by Native Movement, Crawl Walk Run, & the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
