    Kind Heart and Secwepemc Matriarch is a film about Muriel Sasakamoose (Kind Heart). Since a young age, Muriel has had a legacy thrust upon her with many opportunities to succeed as a strong Indigenous woman. To name a few, Muriel was the first Indigenous woman to attend public school in Kamloops, the first Indigenous woman to be elected to the Royal Inland Hospital board, first Indigenous woman to run a provincial and federal election, and she is the only last living founding member of the BC Native Women's Association. Our film shares Muriels story from a young age to the present. We discuss her life growing up in Kamloops, her family, her first jobs, her successes, contributions to the community and the legacy she has created for her family and others.
