DREAMCATCHER BIOS

Dreamcatcher Bios is a 13-part, half-hour documentary series that tells the life stories of these globally successful Indigenous superstars.

Every episode of Dreamcatcher Bios introduces the audience to a famous and inspirational “hero.” Our Dene narrator will guide us through the tribulations our heroes endured, and the eventual triumphs they celebrate, that make them the role models they are today.

These heroes are changing perceptions of Indigenous people in North America, and are representing Indigenous culture in a way the world rarely sees.
