Vanda Fleury-Green | Director, Writer, Archival Producer & Researcher

Vanda is a Métis woman from the prairies of western Manitoba. Her ancestral homelands extend from Red River throughout the Assiniboine valley with family roots in Uno, a section on the railway near historic Fort Ellice. Miles of family relationships and a rural upbringing cultivated a pull towards local stories embedded in land and memory.

Vanda grounds her cultural identity by walking within these spaces and she articulates her connection to land and experience through Photo Voice. Her photographs of Birtle Residential School appeared in Locale: Bringing Heritage to Life, the magazine of the National Trust for Canada.

Vanda's storywork approach blends Indigenous voices and community narratives with object and record literacy. Well suited to video production, she joined the StrongFront.tv team in 2014 and is now Director, Writer/Researcher, and Archival Producer. The lens of empowerment makes this work meaningful.

Vanda is also President of a non-profit organization centered on braiding histories with digital narratives. It is an emerging repository of local Indigenous knowledge.
