Promised Land Film Screening and Panel
Friday, October 20, 2017
6 – 9 PM
A special screening of the documentary, Promised Land with a panel discussion afterwards.
Promised Land is 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.
