Screening of Promised Land, a documentary, an award-winning social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they’ve long been denied. In following their story, the film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty.
Panel discussion with filmmakers and Rudy Ortega Jr., Tribal President, Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians; Duane Champagne and Carole Goldberg, Co-Directors of the Fernandeño Tataviam Federal Recognition Team; as well Chinook Indian Nation and Duwamish Tribe leaders.
