Jamestown S'Klallam to present film on tribal legacy tonight in Port Hadlock, April 16 in Sequim

Peninsula Daily News

Screenings of the Jamestown S'Klallam tribe's new short film, “Legacy of Our Ancestors: Treaty Resources of the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe,” are planned tonight and next Wednesday.

Admission is free. Donations will be accepted to defray costs.

Tonight's screening will be at 7 at the Jefferson County Library, 620 Cedar Ave., Port Hadlock.

An additional showing will be at the Dungeness Schoolhouse, 2781 Towne Road, Sequim, at 7 p.m. next Wednesday.

Tribal elder Marlin Holden and videographer Al Bergstein are hosting the screenings of the film.

Through interviews with tribal citizens who use modern methods to fish, hunt and gather, and those who remember the old ways, this film reconnects viewers to the cycles of nature that allowed indigenous people to thrive through the millennia, according to a news release.

Earlier screenings were at the Elwha Klallam Heritage Center in Port Angeles and Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Port Townsend.

The Dungeness Schoolhouse screening will include an additional video, “Working for the River: Restoring the Dungeness River.”
