Promised Land is an award-winning social justice documentary film that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook. The Northwest is arguably one of the most politically liberal regions in the country. These tribes—who helped European settlers arriving in their homeland, signed treaties, and lost their land—are simply asking for their treaties to be honored. In following their story, the film seeks to spark a discussion about identity and sovereignty. The discussion begins with indigenous recognition—the frontline of the battle for native sovereignty. The film also examines a larger problem in the way that the government, and we as a society, still look at tribal sovereignty. Though the film begins in a specific region, the story it tells is one that countless tribes are going through not only throughout North America, but throughout the world as well. The message about whose land we inhabit and how we work to right these wrongs is universal. The film ends by expanding its focus to issues such as aboriginal identity, blood quantum, and the struggle of indigenous communities for self-determination. This documentary is presented without a narrator, so that only the voices of the tribal members themselves, along with their allies, are the ones presenting the story.

So the next morning he scrounged up a camera and made the trek from his Seattle home to a private slice of stream for the release in early January Those gathered began releasing kokanee eggs by hand into incubator boxes that protected the eggs from predators.
A prayer circle formed, and one of the men whom Cowan said was from the Yakama Nation began singing a warrior song, followed by a few minutes of silence. The number of the fish that have returned to spawn in recent years has dwindled from the thousands to just 19 in Last year, only about came back, well below a healthy and sustainable level.
Even as an octogenarian, Fred Beckey tried to climb mountains along routes nobody had mastered. Late in the film, as Beckey painfully ascends another hillside and a successful ascent looks increasingly unlikely, a friend tries to philosophize. Beckey was born in Germany in , and his parents moved to Seattle two years later; he died in the city on Oct. Fred was 19, and Helmy turned 17 during a brutal night at the summit.
This was no small feat: Thirty-five years would pass before anybody else topped the mountain.

Grayson said that they will not stop until their demands are met “by any means necessary. It’s not even a warning,” Grayson said. We run to black people the minute that they’re killed and we have been seeing them be killed for so long that the PTSD from that is unbelievable. One act of terror. Every day that I show up here, I’m not here to peacefully protest. I’m here to disrupt until my demands are met.
