I am an employee of IsumaTV's project Digital Indigenous Democracy, and love it! I am a passionate human rights activist and computer geek(ette) who tries to use her powers for good as much as possible. I am particularly interested in global indigenous rights, and worked for the West Australian government's project Redress WA, which gave restitution and letters of apology to those abused in state care, primarily members of the Stolen Generation. I am excited to see where IsumaTV will go!See more

    'We went over and over and over that script so many times.'

    'We consulted a lot.'

    "What would we do if we couldn't speak Haida and we couldn't talk to our ancestors? That would be the scariest thing. But that will not happen now, I believe whole heartedly with the film and the 12 women that are going to be teachers."
