I shot this film of Angela Miracle Gladue in Edmonton, Alberta. Angela is an amazing young dancer in both modern hip hop and First Nations traditional styles. She is an incredibly strong woman with the courage to live a positive and healthy lifestyle. Angela is the focus of this video because I want to celebrate the kind of life she is living, and the impact she has as a role model.
