Formalized in the Spring of 2019, we worked co-operatively together to create the short film Midland Motel Room 77'. Utilizing close friend and familial ties, we quickly began to self-produce our own Indigenous content. Modern, contemporary content. As the scale and scope of each project grew, we continued to explore and expand our membership to incorporate new skills and relationships. Each new member brought on board has been an asset to each of the projects, and continues to support our future work. 


We are currently working to further formalize our structure, moving to reflect the more traditional 'flat' structures of our communities past. Each member of the collective and has independently had personal successes in the music, visual arts, film, media arts, fashion, craft and theatre arts fields. Additionally, several members have experience with academic and administrative foci and have been able to assist in the on-going coordination of our business practices
