Tasha Hubbard is a writer, filmmaker, and an assistant professor at the University of Saskatchewan’s Department of English. She is from Peepeekisis First Nation in Treaty Four Territory, and is the mother of a ten-year-old son. Her research is in collaboration with Leroy Little Bear and Amethyst First Rider on the International Buffalo Treaty and Indigenous efforts to return the buffalo to the lands. Her first solo writing/directing project Two Worlds Colliding, about Saskatoon’s infamous Starlight Tours, premiered at ImagineNATIVE in 2004, was broadcast on CBC’s documentary program Roughcuts in 2004, and won the Canada Award at the 2005 Geminis. Her recent short film 7 Minutes won Best Short Non-fiction at the Golden Sheaf Awards. She also recently premiered a NFB-produced feature documentary called Birth of a Family, about a 60s Scoop family reunited for the first time, which landed in the top ten audience choice list at this year’s Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival. Tasha also does research on Indigenous film and is appointed to the National Film Board’s newly formed Indigenous Advisory Council.
