The bonus footage also takes a deeper look at federal recognition and sovereignty politics from a national and international perspective, removed from the regional focus used the film. 

Each bonus disc in the educational extended version takes the Duwamish, Chinook, and Sovereignty sections and breaks up the content modularly in 5-20 minute segments for easy use in educational and training programs, in addition to the bonus material not featured in the film.

This package grants use of the educational DVD is licensed for unlimited use in one location such as a school, class, library, museum, or training program, as well as one single public performance license for a screening on campus or any local venue associated with the license holder.

If you would like to host multiple public screenings, an educational license holder may order additional screening licenses at a reduced rate.

Additional educational materials will be available fall 2017 (pending tribal approval of the additional videos and interviews in the DVD) to teach groups about Duwamish history, Chinook history, and the issues surrounding federal recognition.
