Documentary film by B.J. Bullert: "Alki Birthplace of Seattle" On a rainy morning in November 1851, the Denny Party landed on the shores of Alki. The arrival of these pioneers marked the beginning of an era that would change the landscape and the lives of Duwamish people forever. This documentary explores the meeting of two cultures from the perspectives of pioneer descendant Brewster Denny and James Rasmussen, a Duwamish descendant. Historian David Buerge weaves together the complex stories of the American settlers seeking to build a new community and the Duwamish who struggled to survive in a rapidly changing world.
