The first signer of the 1855 Treaty was Chief Seattle, father of Princess Angeline.
Duwamish longhouses once flourished in and around Seattle, but in 1865 Indians were ordered out of the city. Princess Angeline and a few others refused to leave, and we watch the city growing around them, leaving them landless. This film explores the story of the Duwamish people primarily through the life of Princess Angeline, who is buried in Seattle. The past is present as we learn about their continuing struggle for tribal recognition today.
