Chantal was born on her homelands of Haida Gwaii and currently resides on the traditional lands & waters of the WSÁNEĆ people. Wanting to build healing connections with people, Chantal pursued a degree in Child & Youth Care with an Indigenous Specialization. During this time, she found her passion for research, writing, & storytelling. Two years ago, she directed & produced a film in Haida Gwaii on the connection between land & body sovereignty & healing for Haida people. It is Chantal’s aspiration & passion to research and capture meaningful stories that are captivating and healing for those within the film as well as the audience.
