"I'm Mohawk. My whole life, I've been pushing against this country's image of a Native person. I've always felt, 'No, I am more than that. You need to think more of me, expect more for me.' It's only after a lot of therapy that I realized I feel the same way as a woman. I'd bought into the old idea of what the male-centric media told me I needed to be. So for me, the female gaze is standing up and saying, 'This is who we are,' and being unapologetic about it."
-- Tracey Deer
