The image of Princess Angeline, daughter of Chief Sealth (Seattle), is seen on many postcards. Toward the end of her life, she lived alone, refusing to leave her homeland. What historical events led to her being one of the few Duwamish people left in Seattle by the 1890s, only 35 years after the peace treaty? This video explores the story of the Duwamish and their unrecognized tribal status, primarily through the life of Princess Angeline.
Filmmaker Sandra Osawa (who attended school in Port Angeles and is a member of the Makah Tribe) and her husband, Yasu Osawa, of Upstream Video Productions, will join us for this 53-minute long movie and will remain after the screening for questions and discussion. If any of you were able to see Sandy's film, Maria Tallchief, when it premiered at Peninsula College's Little Theater last November, you know what a remarkable opportunity this is.
This event is presented jointly by the Center for Community Design and the Elwha Klallam Heritage Center.
Proceeds of this event will support the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe's 2013 Canoe Journey, and the Drum Group.
