Sacred Alaska is an award-winning documentary that offers an intimate look at Native Alaskan culture and spirituality. It showcases the profound influence of Orthodoxy, introduced by Russian monks in the late 18th century, on Alaskan society. The film highlights the unique way Alaskans have woven their indigenous beliefs with Orthodox traditions, deeply influencing their worldview. Central to this is the concept of learning to become a "real person." Through beautiful cinematography and powerful storytelling, Sacred Alaska underscores the profound, sacred bond between the Alaskan people, their faith, and the formidable landscape they call home.


Presented by the Orthodox Christian communities in the central Kentucky area—St. Athanasius Orthodox Church in Nicholasville, St. Andrew Orthodox Church in Lexington, St. Matrona Russian Orthodox Mission in Lexington, Holy Mother Greek Orthodox Church in Lexington, and St. Nina Orthodox Mission in Berea—in support of the Diocese of Alaska's work to support native Alaskan clergy families.
