In 1988 Elizabeth Peratrovich's widower Roy Peratrovich spoke at length about his life, their work toward the Anti-Discrimination Act, and aspects of Alaska Native life. In 2011 this interview, found in SHI's archival collections, was transcribed by Ishmael Hope and placed online for educational purposes. This interview gives context and first hand information on these important events of the past. This four-part interview can be read by clicking here, with Part II, containing specific language about the Anti-Discrimination Act of 1945. A special thanks to Ishmael Hope for placing this online, furthering education, and sharing with SHI.
