Quote:
"[As an actor in Night Raiders] I got to speak my language [Cree]. When you have your language and you speak it, it's not just a language, it's actually—it's a living thing. It comes from the ground. It comes from the Earth and it just flows through me, and it pulses. So it's not just a language it's actually—I'm going to cry—it's like it's my ancestors."
-- Gail Maurice
