Osawa was a debate champion at Port Angeles High School and the senior class president.
She was the first Native American producer to produce a major television series, had a fishing-rights program called “Survival” and has filmed all over Indian Country, making documentaries for the past 36 years.
She also made “Maria Tallchief,” a documentary about America's first prima ballerina, and presented the film at Peninsula College last October.
End of her life
Toward the end of her life, Princess Angeline — whose face is seen on many postcards — lived alone, refusing to leave her homeland, said Brenda Francis, Lower Elwha Klallam spokeswoman.
Many have wondered what historical events led to her being one of the few Duwamish people left in Seattle by the 1890s, only 35 years after a peace treaty, Francis said.
Osawa's film explores her story as well as the story of the Duwamish and their unrecognized tribal status, Francis said.
The Peninsula College showing is co-sponsored by the Peninsula College Longhouse of Learning.
The showing at the Elwha Klallam Heritage Center is co-sponsored by the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribal Council and the Center for Community Design.
