Loretta Todd: Today Is a Good Day: Remembering Chief Dan George

by Cara Mertes

The Independent, May 1999, p. 14

Canadian-Cree director Loretta Todd talks about her relationship to storytelling as a Native person and as a filmmaker. Her biography of Chief Dan George which aired as part of the CBC's biography series is an intimate look at an actor, a chief, and a father.

Todd, called "Too arty and too native" by an (unnamed) Canadian broadcaster focusses her work around the questions "Who are the people I know? What is it that we do, that we care about, that we believe in?"
