About Our Voices Project
We are a production company committed to providing a safe space and platform for Black, Brown, and Indigenous Peoples to share experiences while dismantling destructive stereotypes perpetuated in the media through visual storytelling and truthtelling.
Our Voices Project acknowledges and honors that the lands we live, love, grow, work, and learn on are the ancestral homelands of the people of the Onödowáʼga (Seneca) one of the six Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy along with the Cayuga- Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫʼ; Onondaga- Onöñda’gaga’; Oneida- Onyota'a:ka; Mohawk- Kanienʼkehá꞉ka; and, Tuscarora- Skarù:ręˀ. We acknowledge that our society was founded upon exclusions and erasures of many Indigenous Peoples’ through centuries of genocide and forced separation from family, culture, language, and from land, spirit, and mind. We acknowledge this violent history of seizure and displacement that allows us to be on this land, not only as a recognition, but as a motivation for change. As filmmakers, we are committed to working to dismantle the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism through truth-telling.
We invite you to join us in enacting justice by taking such steps as:
Find out how Indigenous Peoples’ are represented in your local school distict’s curricula and advocate for the historical truth-telling of ancestral land dispossession and genocide, and the acknowledgement and celebration of Indigenous contributions past and present.
Learn about the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (#MMIW) movement created to advocate for the end of violence against Native women and to bring awareness to the high rates of disappearances and murders of Native people, particularly women and girls. Learn how you can help!
