We’re building a database for Indigenous creatives. Our goal: To foster community with other creatives while increasing visibility, hiring opportunities, and collaborations in global media industries. We prioritize Indigenous peoples and actively seek to build coalition with other artists in the global majority, including Black, Latinx, Asian, and people of color, as well as people who are undocumented, femme, trans, and nonbinary people, LGBTQIA+ people, and people with disabilities. We look forward to building a new way of working in a changing world while showcasing and creating community for Indigenous screen storytellers.

Statement Regarding Indigenous Identity
We acknowledge that, due to colonization and white supremacy, our stories of Indigenous identity are complex narratives. We intend to create a space for persons who have done the work of learning about themselves and being in community with their Indigenous family and peers, with the goal of connecting to one’s unique lived experience, reflecting on how it has been shaped by the knowledge, joy, challenges, and history of one’s elders and ancestors. As such, we ask all who join this online community to be ready to share more about your journey toward connecting with your community, bringing forward stories rooted in lived Indigenous realities. Wherever you are on your personal journey toward embracing your Indigenous self, your ancestors, and your future, we look forward to connecting with you.
