"We were about to make a film on a remote Indian reserve [in 1967], and felt clueless about how to proceed. A friend of mine [...] had seen a documentary film on the CBC about Alanis. [...] A group of us met her and talked about her views on film. And that's when she said, 'Well, I've seen Film Board films dealing with Aboriginal people, and we never hear the people speak.'"
