'I’m making a show about my own life,' says director Tracey Deer
“I’m making a show about my own life, about my sister's life, my friends', my cousins',” says director Tracey Deer.
The series, Mohawk Girls, follows four young women who are searching for love as they struggle to find their place in the world.
"I grew up on the reserve feeling invisible, voiceless, in all aspects of my life—here on the reserve, out in the bigger world. I felt really boxed in," Deer says.
