Nin E Tepueian: My Cry. An indigenous call rises up within me
This documentary tracks the journey of Innu poet, actress and activist Natasha Kanapé Fontaine, at a pivotal time in her career as a committed artist.
To heal the wound of racism, Natasha has reappropriated her Innu language and becomes a media spokesperson.
Words have helped her rediscover her roots and empowered her. She gets the conversation going, and as it develops, she questions the need for self-determination for herself as well as for other Indigenous people both here and elsewhere.
