Lisa’s father, a former Tsihlqot’in Chief and Residential School Survivor, committed suicide when Lisa was 4 years old, which fractured the family, and ostracized them from the community. Can these wounds ever be healed? Lisa speaks with Chief Percy Guichon, Otis Guichon, Pahan Pte San Win, Ervin Charleyboy and John Charleyboy.

Urban Native Girl is an inspirational documentary series about Aboriginal fashonista Lisa Charleyboy as she follows her dream to transform her popular beauty blog into a glossy print magazine. Along the way we meet Lisa's mentors and friends.
