"As a creative person the main thing I have learned is to
let your unique vision and voice be evident in all that you create.
As a Native American woman filmmaker I want to focus on what that
unique vision is and not see myself at a disadvantage. No one
else will ever be able to create the exact same image or depict
a story in the same way. That is the beauty that each and every
one of us has to bring to the screen, canvas, or page."
