She was born around 1820 to Chief Seattle in what is now Rainier Beach in Seattle, Washington. The 1855 Treaty of Point Elliott required that all Duwamish Indians leave their land for reservations, but Angeline remained in Seattle in a waterfront cabin on Western Avenue between Pike and Pine Streets, near what is now Pike Place Market. She did laundry and sold handwoven baskets through the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop. She died on May 31, 1896 and was buried in Lake View Cemetery on Capitol Hill.
