Her projects have screened at 60+ film festivals and her work has been featured on PBS, CNN and the Independent Film Channel. Erica’s films explore topics including violence against Indigenous women, restorative justice and issues impacting the two-spirit community. Erica was recently honored as a 40 Under 40 Native American. Erica’s narrative short film, “Little Chief,” will have its World Premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, which takes place in Park City, Utah from Jan. 23 to Feb. 2.

In the second half-hour, Tiokasin talks with Christine McCleave.

Christine is an alumna of Northwestern College, Augsburg University and St. Thomas University, having earned master’s degrees in leader and business administration, with a research focus on the legacy of Indian boarding schools on spiritual activities and Indian activism today. In addition to being trained in numerous trauma and healing practices and exercises, Christine is presently a fellow of the Nexus Community Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute. The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition is embarking on a ten-year strategic plan designed to strengthen the organization as it continues to grow into the future.
