Meaningful Movies: Princess Angeline
The Duwamish people are the true Seattle natives. This 2010 documentary explores the everyday life of the Duwamish tribe and their interaction with the region's first white settlers through the experience of Chief Seattle's daughter.
As always with Beacon Hill's Meaningful Movies, the screening is free, the popcorn is free (donation hat goes around), and the film is accompanied by a relevant discussion, in this case with Seattle filmmakers Sandra and Yasu Osawa.

Ebola Relief Concert
When it comes to containing a massive health crisis, especially in less-developed regions, one of the most important assets is personnel: people willing to travel into the heart of the crisis in order to help save lives, often at the risk of their own. Doctors Without Borders continues to be an invaluable resource for organizing and dispatching these healthcare professionals.
