A tattoo artist in the middle of tattooing on someone's arm. | "Skindigenous: Lebret"

Lebret

Written and directed by Courtney Montour. Metis artist Audie Murray sees tattooing as a way for people to connect with their culture and communities when they are away from home. Audie's art and tattoo practice draw from the duality in her life, especially her experience growing up in Regina and Lebret, and then moving to Vancouver to pursue her art career. She finds inspiration for her work in Metis beaded designs. When Audie returns home to Regina and Lebret, her work is centered around creating and learning from family.
