Here are the focus questions developed by F3 Kids:

1. What does it mean that the Duwamish is invisible?
2. How did the Duwamish watershed lose so many species?
3. What was the purpose of making the river straight and How did they do it?
4. Why were people dumping toxins and other pollutants in the river?
5. What happened to the Duwamish Tribe?
