A young Métis woman reconnects with her Indigenous ancestry and begins a journey of self-discovery when she learns about sweet grass from her non-Native friend.

Jessie Ray Short is an artist, filmmaker, and independent curator of Métis, Ukrainian, and German ancestry whose cross disciplinary practice involves memory, visual culture, and Métis history. Jessie Ray holds an MA degree from Brock University with a focus on contemporary Métis visual culture and will be starting a PhD in September 2021 at the University of Regina.
