Birthing Sovereignty
Birthing Sovereignty” features five Anishinaabe women on the Fond du Lac Reservation sharing Indigenous traditions for raising babies in this instructive and spiritual documentary produced by the Ojibwemowining Digital Arts Studio. After 200+ years of colonization, Ojibwe resilience is helping to revive the use of cradleboards, moss bags, and belly button pouches.

For Native students, classrooms are oftentimes the first battlegrounds. Native students oftentimes must ignore assaults on real history and also their self-esteem for survival; it is a brutal process and results in the erasure of Native figures from history and the elevation of Europeans to a heightened place in history. Petaki is just one story of what happens when one student engages that battleground armed with real history and intentions not to be erased ever again.

Short documentary, continues the themes and work which In the Land of the Finndians -book (published in Finland in 2016) started. Featuring among others Lyz Jaakola, Rebecca and Jim Gawboy.

The Coyote Way
This sci-fi docu-narrative follows Charlie, who is forced to choose between joining a Native street gang or going on an epic pilgrimage. Featuring an entirely Native American cast, the film was shot in the Minneapolis neighborhoods of Phillips and Little Earth.
