JoAnne Fishburn gained experience in the UK in film finance, international co-productions and impact producing. Over the last 10 years she has worked as an impact producer helping filmmakers use their films as tools for social change. In 2016, as a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action, she initiated INDIGENOUS 150+, a film and conversation series dedicated to putting Indigenous voices centre stage, which led to a podcast and leadership training initiative for Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth. Through the programme, 17 youth from across the country launched the Indigenous 150+podcast series of 40+ episodes celebrating Indigenous knowledge keepers, artists and community leaders.
Julianna Peter-Paul grew up in Metepenagiag Mi’kmaq Nation where the southwest and northwest Miramichi River meet. She is passionate about learning, human rights, learning her languages and the traditions of her people, as well as sharing her knowledge and stories with others. Julianna has been involved in multiple youth organizations, representing her territory for MMYAC and MTI Youth Council. She believes that the youth are key factors to change and grow indigenous communities.
Julianna is part of the Indigenous 150+ podcast programme. Wela’loq! She is currently working on an podcast series about the importance of language and oral stories. You can find the podcast series on all major podcast platforms by looking up Indigenous 150+ or the website www.Indigenous150plus.com/podcasts
