Part II: Any Village
Describing the impact the "Global-Literate Society" has historically had on most "Traditional-Local Cultures," Father Oleksa tells the "STORY of any Village" based on his half-century of experience in rural Alaska. He explores the disruptive influences that have rocked traditional communities beginning with the introduction of "English-only" elementary schools, followed by the trauma of Boarding Schools and their aftermath.
The introduction of alcohol and drugs further aggravate the situation, leading epidemic levels of anti-social and self-destructive behaviors, producing a reaction from the dominant society, expressed in HELP: various interventions and "programs" that tend only to worsen rather than reduce the problems they were designed to address.
