Metis

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.

Jim Fortier (Metis/Ojibwe) sits in the hot Arizona desert and stares at the location for his latest documentary, Bad Sugar.

This is no glamorous Hollywood movie set; there are no celebrity actors and no expensive special effects. This is a film about real people.

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.
