Help This Young Filmmaker’s Anishinaabe Project on Kickstarter!

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown May 14th, 2017 Last Updated on: May 14th, 2017

Shane McSauby is a member of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians. He recently participated in Sundance Institute's 2016 Native Filmmakers Lab, where he worked on the script for his current project, Mino Bimaadiziwin.

The film follows Jim Asiginaak, a transgender Anishinaabe man, who has lost all connection to his Native culture until he has a chance meeting with a mysterious Anishinaabe woman, Bangishimogikwe.

Here's more about the project from McSauby:

He's already halfway to his modest of goal of $3,000 to finish the project.

So if you have a little bit of money laying around help a Native brother out!

It's important for more Indigenous voices to be heard!
