Mountain Village is an Alaska Native town in the middle of nowhere. One woman is the town?s only police officer and she alone is responsible for the safety of everyone there. Her track record is perfect until one day when she responds to a call that changes everything.

This story discusses suicide, violence, and contains strong language. Sensitive listeners, please be advised.

We can?t thank Anna Bill and Jim and Eunice Bryan enough for sharing their stories with us. We also want to thank Cathy Moses and the Mountain Village Tribal Council for their time and patience. Additional thanks to Francine Chiklak, Johanna Eurich, Steve Hiemel, Shane Iverson, Anna Rose MacArthur, Lori Townsend, and Anna Walters.

In addition to Anna Bill?s work, Mountain Village is tackling its suicide and public safety crises with grassroots community programs, as well as a tribal court system that focuses on restorative justice. You can learn more about them here and here. A version of this story was first reported for NPR affiliate KYUK in Bethel, Alaska in 2018. If you?re interested in learning more about rural Alaska and its public safety crisis, we recommend following KYUK and KNBA?s coverage, as well as ProPublica?s Lawless series.

The Inventor and The Thief - Snap Classic

You get up every morning and go through the motions, but do you ever stop to wonder what you're leaving behind? 

When a brilliant inventor was robbed of his life?s work, his son did the only reasonable thing: he became a robber.

Walter produced a film called The Unknowns: Talent is Colorblind. The film tells the incredible true story of ?The Highway,? a group of self-taught African-American painters living in the Jim Crow South who, when no one was looking, invented a whole new style of art.

To learn more about the life of Walter Shaw Sr. and his inventions, be sure to check out Walter Jr.?s memoir, License To Steal, and the documentary Genius On-Hold.
