Native Immigrant

Videography, graphic design, art direction, website

Since 2013, the collective Native Immigrant keeps me grounded through creative sharing. We aim to bridge Indigenous peoples to immigrants through events such as conversational circles, dressmaking and art exhibitions.

Tionnhehkwen: Seeds of Life (2017 - 2018) is our latest happening. The visuals were Inspired by the Indigenous concept of the Three Sisters, as well as a conversation with NI collective member Francis about seeds, beginnings and nourishment. Participants have come through and donated objects to the dress, a ritual I shoot and edit as part of NI's oral history collection.

On top of collaborating to create instances of exchange with my fellow collective members, making graphics for each event, and producing videos, I designed the website and countless printed materials for NI.
