Princess Angelina in Seattle

Duwamish Heritage, November 16, 2019, 2:00pm at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline 98133. Free parking in city garage.

Come celebrate and learn more about the history of the Duwamish, the indigenous tribe of this area. 

2:00pm - Welcome Ceremony by Ken Workman and Traditional Performance by Blake Shelafoe

2:30pm - Film Screening of Princess Angeline (53 minutes)

Kikisoblu, named Princess Angeline by early settler Catherine Maynard, was the daughter of Chief Seattle. She lived alone towards the end of her life, refusing to leave her homeland. The film explores the story of the Duwamish people and their unrecognized tribal status, primarily through the life of Princess Angeline.

Learn 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  -- but it never happened.

3:30pm - Q/A with Edie Loyer Nelson, Duwamish Tribal Member

4:00pm - Close
