"I grew up feeling invisible, feeling like I didn't have a voice and feeling like I had absolutely no purpose. Growing up as an Aboriginal person in Canada, you just feel like you don't matter. [...] I wanted make films since I was a child, though I wanted to blow things up—make Indiana Jones 5. Once I grew up, I started to see the power filmmaking could have. It gave me a voice all of a sudden and I no longer felt powerless."
