A national radio program is hosting a live call-in show Tuesday about Attu Island.

The episode of "Native America Calling" will explore the Aleutian campaign of World War II, the Attuans' captivity in Japan, and recent efforts by Attu descendants to reconnect with their ancestral homeland.

The program will feature three descendants, including Atka Mayor Crystal Dushkin, as well as KUCB's Zoe Sobel, who reported on a special return trip to the island last summer.

Tune in to KUCB this Tuesday at 9 a.m. to listen to the live broadcast.

Laura Kraegel reported for KUCB from 2016 until 2020. She was KUCB's news director starting in 2019.
