Vanda Fleury | Director, Writer / Researcher & Archival Producer

Vanda Fleury is a Métis film and photo voice artist, writer, and entrepreneur. She weaves storywork with memories, diverse experiences, cultural knowledge, and documentary heritage.

Vanda is a citizen of the Manitoba Métis Federation and a descendant of the Red River Métis. She grew up on the west-central prairies where rural experiences cultivated a connection to land-based narratives that resulted in numerous road trips.

Vanda moved to Winnipeg in 2008 and set out with the aim to empower Indigenous people through object and record literacy. An evolving commitment, she founded the non-profit organization, Mamawi Apikatetan and leads cultural and video heritage projects. Oral histories also inspired her career in video production, and she joined StrongFront.tv in 2014 where she is a Director, Writer / Researcher and Archival Producer.

The lens of resiliency centres Vanda's work. Her independent short, In Good Hands is an expression of birth sovereignty that screened at the 23rd imagineNATIVE Film + Media arts festival and at the 30th Arizona International Film Festival. Punctuated by intimate experiences of motherhood, she traces storylines to identity, kinship and birthwork. Vanda's photographs of Birtle Residential School have appeared in Locale: Bringing Heritage to Life, the magazine of the National Trust for Canada.

Vanda's children and the narratives of her ancestors are enduring sources of creative motivation.
