Rose Stiffarm  Burnaby, BC
Hello, I am Rose Stiffarm. I am an Indigenous Cinematographer who has been called to document the #NoDAPL frontlines.

I am an alumni of Capilano University's Indigenous Independent Digital Filmmaking Diploma Program, the Cinematography for Film and Video Certificate Program, and the Motion Picture Bachelor Degree Program.

I have also had the opportunity to work on independent, union, and many student films in the camera department.

While doing frontline work, my footage was threatened to be used as evidence. I was arrested for "criminal trespassing" and also for "engaging in a riot."

I know that it is imperative of myself to continue documenting #noDAPL because the mainstream/corporate media twists the narrative to fit their idealistic bottom line. Biased opinion and behavior does not reflect good journalism or democracy, and as such it is critical for Indigenous mediamakers to be present to help the rest of the world witness what they might not see otherwise.

Your donation would go to acquiring a camera, in addition to camera related accessories such as lenses, filters, and other needs to help me get through the brutal North Dakota winter.
