DOCUMENTARY SHORT | CANADA | 5 MINUTES | English
As a continuation of her first film We Are Not Speaking the Same Language, Danika explains what it feels like to be a displaced urban Indigenous.
Danika St-Laurent is Saulteaux from Muskowekwan (SK) who was born in Sherbrooke (QC) and who grew up and currently lives in Montreal (QC). As a descendant of the Sixties Scoop and Residential Schools, she did not grow up within culture, let alone in a community. She spent her childhood, adolescence, and young adult life searching for her indigenous calling as urban indigenous youth.
In January 2020, Danika started beading again and began her small beaded earrings business called Neebageesis Beadwork.
