Born in James Bay and raised in the Cree community of Chisasibi, Ernest Webb has devoted his life to telling the stories of Canada’s Aboriginal peoples across all media.

Joey Stylez is Cree-Metis and a Moosomin First Nations Tribal member. Moosmin is located in Saskatchewan, Canada. He had a rough upbringing and overcame that by using his talent for putting a positive light on his Native heritage.

Steve Wood (Saddle Lake Cree Nation) and two of his brothers founded Northern Cree in 1982. Northern Cree has released 37 albums under Canyon Records. 

Paul Rickard runs Mushkeg Media Inc. in Montreal. He has worked as a producer, director and cameraman in collaboration with independent production companies and organizations such as Nutaaq Media Inc.

Native American performers infuse contemporary genres of dance and music with traditional elements from their Tribal heritage. Through artist interviews and performances, six profiles document the effort to bring this "Native Fusion" genre to mainstream performing arts.

Mary is Founder and Co-President of Painted Sky, a non-profit organization that provides outreach programs to Native youth in order to raise awareness of their rich cultural heritage.

Ishi’s Return is a half-hour film about Ishi, billed in 1911 as the “last wild Indian,” when he wandered out of the woods in Oroville, California, and became a national sensation. When Ishi died, his brain was removed and sent to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Eighty years later, his descendants in California fought to have his remains repatriated to his ancestral home. Ishi’s Return is from Native filmmakers Chris Eyre (Cheyenne/Arapaho) and Brian Wescott (Athabascan/Yup'ik) and producer Roberta Grossman (500 Nations, Homeland).
