Matriarch Rising

August 24, 2018


Matriarch Rising was created by Indigenous filmmakers, Helen Mots Tommy, Savannah M, Kelly Yellowbird, Shaina W, and Jenna Quock.

This film was made as part of the First Directions program, which brings together Indigenous youth to connect with our culture, deepen our response to HIV and Hep C stigma, and produce films that give voice to our experiences.

First Directions is made possible in partnership with Reel Youth, and with financial support from the First Nations Health Authority.
