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 never happened.
