NAC is honoured to work with many incredible Indigenous artists year round, and for National Indigenous Peoples Day, we highlight a few short videos by Indigenous collectives to encourage further exploration of Indigenous stories.
NAC is located on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today.
Bawaadan Collective is an all content indigenous created, indigenous owned creative collective. Indigenous artists and accomplices, collaborative contemporary storytelling through film and media production. Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Cree, Oji-Cree, Maori.
Ground is a contemplation on place, identity and time. The root of this work is focused on a collection of old photographs that were taken in the Atikameksheng (Sudbury) area over at least 50 years, and more recent video footage from Mnidoo Mnis (Manitoulin Island). Produced / Written / Directed / Score ee portal of Bawaadan Collective.
Ojistoh Productions doubles as a literary publishing label and media production house operating from Six Nations of the Grand River. Owner and producer Mohawk/Tuscarora writer and media artist Janet Marie Rogers believes in the growth of Indigenous art practices and communities where room for new voices and practices is infinite.
