Walking in Two Worlds ENCORE

Alaska's Tongass ForestThis is a special encore edition. We bring you to Alaska’s Tongass Forest, where the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act turned tribes into corporations and sparked a lengthy logging frenzy. In this radio adaptation of the documentary film, Walking in Two Worlds, we meet a Tlingit brother and sister, who are trying to heal both the forest and their native community.

Special thanks to Specialty Studios.
