Nearly a year after meeting at the Oceti Sakowin camp during the NoDAPL resistance movement at Standing Rock, five Indigenous Water Protectors reunite in Toronto, Ontario. Brought together by a calling to protect the water, their experiences moved them to further elevate their voices in solidarity with the global Indigenous community.


Victoria Anderson-Gardner (Ojibwe) is a queer, gender non-conforming Indigenous filmmaker and activist. With a BFA in Film Production from Ryerson, the most recent projects they have worked on include: An Inconvenient Indian directed by Michelle Latimer and the CBC documentary In Search of a Perfect World.
