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; 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.
