Ken Workman, Duwamish, is the great-great-great-nephew of Princess Angeline and great-great-great-great-grandson of Chief Si’ahl (for whom Seattle is named).
Ken was born on Alki Beach in West Seattle and grew up playing on this beach and in the woods surrounding it. It was important to him to be photographed here with the Seattle skyline across the bay. This is also the beach where Chief Seattle welcomed the first white settlers on to their land.
Ken shared spell-binding stories with us about his people and their land. No one can share it better than he, so here's a short video of Ken telling us about where he’s from.
We'll be posting more from Ken soon.
