You can have one GFCI protect downstream outlets.
The other outlets must be wired off the LOAD side of the GFCI
If anything causes a fault all outlets are dead
The other outlets CAN be GFCI - but this provides no added benefit

2nd option
Wire multiple GFCI's with LINE feed (hot power) going to each GFCI
Each GFCI will kick out ONLY if its load is a problem
Other outlets are unaffected
Benefit: Everything does not shut down, easier to determine which device caused the problem

To test:
Press the button on each GFCI one by one & see what happens
If only that outlet is dead then you have power to each GFCI
If all kick out then they are all wired off the load of one GFCI
