Office: FPH 133
I trace my family's Métis ancestry to Red River, Duck Lake and St. Paul Métis Settlements. As the communications officer for the office of Indigenous Academic and Community Engagement, I promote Indigenous programs, events and supports on social media, print and video. I have worked at IACE since 2019. Prior to that, I was an author and filmmaker, directing a number of Indigenous documentaries, including 1491: The Untold Story of the Americas Before Columbus, Down2Earth and Truth, Dance & Reconcilation. I have served as a director of several non-profit organizations including the Victoria Native Friendship Centre, Victoria Film Festival, Documentary Canada, and the Alliance of Aboriginal Media Professionals. In 2019, I received the Indspire arts award.
