Description

Alanis Obomsawin is a unique and special leader in the development of Indigenous thought, scholarship, accuracy, and activism, doing it through the arts, and inspiring really every facet of the Indigenous artistry of today, from fashion to filmmaking. An activist who got the facts right first, Obomsawin found multiple ways to distribute that knowledge to the rest of us: She researched it from the inside, she wrote it, she filmed it, she sang about it, she directed it, she produced it and she developed it. She also got it seen when most people would have denied it was possible, let alone accomplished by an Indigenous woman.
