This is the inspirational story of how the Alutiiq people in Kodiak, Alaska saved their culture by bringing the masks home from France. Part 1 details the history of Russian conquest and the decimation of the Alaska Native peoples. Amidst this turmoil a young French Explorer records their language, stories and songs and takes 87 masks that would have been destroyed back to France.
