The Silence

April 19, 2011 / 53m

Season 2011: Episode 12

Produced by:

Tom Curran and reporter Mark Trahant examine a little-known chapter of the Catholic Church sex abuse story: decades of abuse of Native Americans by priests and church workers in Alaska. The Silence shows how the isolation of the villages and the absolute authority of the church over the Native population created an atmosphere where molestation could go unchecked and unreported. The Silence is a co-presentation with Native American Public Telecommunications (NATP). [Explore more stories on the original website for The Silence.]
