Cree language instructor Theola Ross joins us for an afternoon of story-sharing that will connect meaningfully to Indigenous wellness.
Theola Ross is from Pimichikamak Cree Nation in Northern Manitoba and speaks Cree. “Twilight Dancers” is her directorial debut. The film, a CBC short doc, has been shown widely both nationally and internationally. She is a recent graduate of the Bachelor of Social Work Program at Ryerson University. Toronto is her second home. She has experience working with individuals struggling with social-cultural context within social discourse. Her experience includes both being raised on-reserve and living in an urban setting. Her command of Cree, her mother tongue, is very important to her.
