INNOVATOR PROFILE

ELLE-MÁIJÁ TAILFEATHERS

Area of Expertise: Film

"There’s a pressure as an Indigenous filmmaker...to always dwell in the sadness and the anger and the pain. In some ways it just becomes too much and there needs to be more of a celebration as well. When I go to my grandparents’ house and visit, we don’t talk about all the sad stuff - they tell me stories and we laugh and we joke around…I want to incorporate that into my practice and my work."
