Following my encounter with the young Canadian budding filmmaker Damon John Little , I created an association to help young Aboriginal filmmakers :
” Plumes et regards ” is an association whose purpose is writing , directing, production, promotion and distribution of solidarity documentaries (films and multimedia works ) on issues of Native American and indigenous peoples fighting for their existence : cultural preservation , language , and identity , environmental protection, land management , sustainable development, etc. It supports young Native American authors, artists and creators by the development of partnership projects ( crossed viewpoints , inter-cultural projects ) , offering a home to young writers , artists and creators in residence and skills transfer .
