Promised Land Film Screening & Panel Discussion (Oct 20 Los Angeles CA)

  • Dodd Hall Los Angeles, CA (map)

A special film 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.

A panel discussion follows with: filmmakers; Rudy Ortega Jr., Tribal President, FernandeƱo Tataviam Band of Mission Indians; Duane Champagne and Carole Goldberg, Co-Directors of the FernandeƱo Tataviam Federal Recognition Team; and leaders from the Chinook Indian Nation and Duwamish Tribe.
