In this acclaimed 1994 documentary, Loretta Todd, a leading figure in Indigenous cinema in Canada, profiles four contemporary female artists — Doreen Jensen, Rena Point Bolton, Jane Ash Poitras, and Joane Cardinal-Schubert — who seek to find a continuum from traditional to contemporary forms of expression.  Each artist reveals her practice and journey in her own words.  The film is a moving testimony to the vital role Indigenous women play in nurturing Indigenous cultures.
