05:00 AM: Smokin' Fish

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 05:00:00 PST

Cory Mann is a quirky Tlingit businessman hustling to make a dollar in Juneau, Alaska. He gets hungry for smoked salmon, nostalgic for his childhood, and decides to spend a summer smoking fish at his family's traditional fish camp. The unusual story of his life and the untold history of his people interweave with the process of preparing the food as he struggles to pay his bills, keep the IRS off his back, and keep his business afloat. By turns tragic, bizarre, or just plain ridiculous, SMOKIN' FISH tells the story of one man's attempts to navigate the messy collision between the modern world and an ancient culture.

06:00 AM: Walking Into The Unknown

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 06:00:00 PST

This Emmy-nominated documentary traces the intimate journey of an American Indian physician and national health columnist as he navigates the health care system and gains a deeper understanding of himself and his health risks. Dr. Arne Vainio works on the Fond du Lac (Ojibwe) Reservation in northern Minnesota, where his Native patients face grim health statistics. His impending 50th birthday - coupled with his frustration with middle-aged Native men who avoid health screenings - prompts a revelation: he needs to heed his own advice. At high risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer, Vainio chooses to confront the health issues that jeopardize his future by undergoing medical screenings, making diet changes and adopting a lifestyle necessary to prevent a fatal outcome. This poignant story reveals Dr. Vainio's vulnerability as he reverses roles and finds himself a patient. The program also includes several powerful testimonials from community members who have experienced the premature loss of Native men in their families, along with explanations of several diagnostic tests told from the patient's point of view.

05:00 PM: Mystic Voices: The Story of the Pequot War

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 17:00:00 PST

The Pequot War was a pivotal event in early American History that set the stage for the ultimate domination of all Native Americans by Europeans. Narrated by two-time Academy Award nominee Roy Scheider, this 2-part program presents a balanced view of events, underlying causes, consequences and legacy of the first declared war in American history. Although the conflict was small by today's standards, the rhetoric of the English Puritans made their victory over the "heathens" a significant event in the early history of the United States and crystallized the attitudes and myths that became the foundations of our nation. This program is not just a history lesson about a regional tribe, but presents insights into how the voices of our ancestors play a part in who we are today as Americans.

Amid the bustling world of central Oregon's wild mushroom hunting camps, the lives of two former soldiers intersect. Roger, a 75 year-old sniper with the us special forces in Vietnam, and Kouy, a 46 year-old platoon leader of Cambodia's Khmer freedom fighters who battled the khmer Rouge, come together each fall to hunt the elusive matsutake mushroom, a rare mushroom prized in Japanese culture and cuisine. However, the pair discover more than just mushrooms in the woods: they find a new life, and livelihood; and, a means to slowly heal the scarring wounds of war. Told over the course of one Matsutake mushroom season, the Last Season is a journey into the woods, into the memory of war and survival, telling a story of family from an unexpected place.

Traces the life of World War II veteran Gustav Potthoff, from his birth in Indonesia to his imprisonment in the Japanese slave labor camp responsible for building the infamous bridge over the River Kwai.

Decades later, he began painting visceral yet spiritual scenes of POW camp life - the guards, beatings, jungle, escape attempts and those left behind. During the film, Potthoff, his family and friends, museum curators and an art collector each convey the historical and cultural value of Potthoff's work.
