FRONTLINE examines a little-known chapter of the Catholic Church sex abuse story -- decades of abuse of Native Americans by priests and other church workers in Alaska. All told, they would leave behind a trail of hundreds of claims of abuse, making this one of the hardest hit regions in the country. "The Silence" is the first of two FRONTLINE magazine segments airing Apr 19.
