Princess Angeline, daughter of Chief Seattle, is seen on many postcards and 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 1890′s, 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.

Special Guests: Several Duwamish Elders will be present

Sponsors: Our host, East Shore Unitarian Church, has a Tuesday night potluck each week starting at 5:00 p.m. All are welcome to enjoy dinner and great conversation before and after the movie!

    History fans can find more free historic info and photos searching Digital Public Library This free mega search engine includes national archives, Seattle library, UW libraries, and world collections with free images, videos, documents, & digital resources.
    Too little information about the Duwamish tribe reaches the mainstream. I learned important history from when the early settlers the natives helped were driven away from their own land. Also accurate information about Princess Angeline does not come from the “Ghost Tours” of Seattle which doesn’t reflect the Duwamish are not ghosts but people living here with us now.
