The World Needs More Kim


This award-winning Producer is inspiring the masses by sharing all the beauty that abounds in Indigenous communities.


Today's Indigenous media scene is becoming increasingly occupied by empowered, seriously rockin' women like Kim Wheeler.

For more than two decades, she's pushed and resisted to make it possible for our stories - particularly the positive ones - to be told and shared on a national level. As a young woman, Kim didn't have access to her culture; but as soon as she found it, she grabbed it and ran. Catch her if you can!
