Quotes by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers

"I grew really frustrated with the [film and television] industry being a woman, an Indigenous woman and a woman of colour because it was very challenging. To feel so little agency and control working with so many gross stereotypes of Indigenous people in films being made by non-Indigenous people. So that was when I went back to UBC [University of British Columbia] and, while I was there, I learned how to operate a camera, use editing software and made my first short film."
-- Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers (source)

"My values don't always align with that of conventional documentary filmmaking, having to remain objective behind the camera. This is community-based filmmaking. Morally and ethically, the responsibilities of being a community member are more important. Documentary filmmakers from outside our community have the privilege of walking away, and they have blind spots in their understanding of our experience. We navigate things differently."
-- Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers (source)
