Princess Angeline, daughter of Chief Seattle and star of many Seattle postcards, lived alone towards the end of her life, refusing to leave her homeland. What historical events led her to be one of the few Duwamish people left in Seattle by the 1890s, only 35 years after the peace treaty guaranteeing that land would be reserved for the Duwamish (which never happened)?
This film explores the story of the Duwamish people and their unrecognized tribal status primarily through the life of Princess Angeline. There will be a discussion with the filmmakers following the screening.
