For centuries, Alaska Native peoples survived the harsh conditions of life in the far north, while their social, cultural, and spiritual practices thrived. In the 1900’s, the battle to claim Alaska and its peoples began, setting in motion disruptive changes that led to many painful inter-generational scars. In a landscape as dramatic as its stories, We Breathe Again is a documentary film that intimately explores the lives of four Alaska Native people, each confronting the impacts of historic and contemporary trauma.
