Subsistence, Struggle, & Salvation on an Alaskan Island

The tiny community of Angoon, Alaska - population 349 - struggles to maintain a vital and thriving traditional culture. Hemmed in by regulations limiting their ability to subsist off the land and sea, and a small, difficult-to-access island preventing investment and growth from reaching the community and providing jobs, the population has been declining for decades. The Salvation Army, working in Alaska since 1898, has served the Angoon community through its highs and lows, forging lasting friendships and relationships along the way. See the stunning scenery, learn about the subsistence lifestyle of the Tlingit people, and witness the unique service work of The Salvation Army’s local officers in this short documentary.
