Assimilation turns history on its head. What if foreigners came to your home and you were told you couldn't speak English or practice your religion? This show reverses the roles of Native Alaska and white people, from the Great Death in villages throughout Alaska in the 20th century to the loss of dignity when white people used school, religion and physical punishment to beat the language, traditions, ancestry and even a sense of place out of Native people.
