"I openly wept many times during the watching of this film [nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up]. I could feel every word, every image, every video clip that was carefully delivered to me by [Tasha] Hubbard and her film team. I felt strong emotion not only for the story being told, but for the sense of loss I felt in my own Native blood. I felt the loss of ancestral families, the loss of language, the loss of my own relatives that I have never had the honor to meet. But Hubbard comforted me as well as she comforted her son and nephew when she looked at historical records in some museum's archives. 'We're here because the people that came before us loved us so much,' Hubbard says to her son and nephew. The moment was a gift to all Indigenous people, in my view."
