Buried Traces is an 8 minute experimental documentary exploring questions of Métis identity, cultural loss and renewal. Motivated largely by an exploration of my Métis ancestry, the film addresses the colonial legacy of shame and hidden identity which continues to inform the Métis experience.

The film, which interweaves missionary archives, photographs, fiction and non-fiction sequences shot in both film and video, is also a meditation on the community’s historical legacy of struggle and cultural persistence.
