Fairies and Indians

Christiana Latham

Fairies and Indians is a visual representation of the exploration of the differences between the two cultures I was brought up in, I am a British and Northern Dene Native who is strong and guided in both the Western and Indigenous worlds. I decided to highlight my obvious cultural differences through film and by employing the spontaneous dance of children, music and drawings.

Rich textures and an overlay effect were used to express my ideas. I wanted not only to celebrate my cultural differences but also to divide them side by side within the film. Fairies have always reminded me of growing up in England and Pow-Wows remind me of my time spent in Southern Alberta, Canada.

The film portrays a whimsical, dream-like storybook of my individuality.
