Forging a Career in Aboriginal Film and Video (originally published in Heartbeat of the North.com)


In Culture, Media Writing, Movie Reviews, Writing (all kinds) on December 2, 2008 at 11:53

Marie-Helene Cousineau is a video and filmmaker who I first met by being her teacher’s assistant at Concordia University in Montreal back in 1997. Her career path has lead her to many opportunities to work with Aboriginal people in Nunavut. She is founder of a women’s video collective called Isuma.

“Just the fact that I moved to Igloolik, this was not something I planned ahead,” says Cousineau talking about how she came to form Isuma. “I was working with women’s groups and individual women before moving to Igloolik, so I was working for people that were there.” Continue reading

Hair – by Donna Kakonge (published December 1999/January 2000 – Panache Magazine)


In Beauty, Media Writing, Opinion, Technology, Writing (all kinds) on November 2, 2008 at 14:27

Back in the mid-80s, watching Oprah Winfrey’s bouncing and behaving hair was like a dream come true. I never knew that black hair could do that. I rushed to a salon, telling them to duplicate the Oprah ‘do on my head, and they did. The bad part is that just like what once happened to Oprah, my hair fell out. I was left with no hair on my head to duplicate any ‘do. Continue reading

Spain (originally published with Rozaneh Magazine)

This is the Spain where it is easy to play Red Rover on the beach, but hard not to shop. This is the country of siesta, cheap shoes and sangria that flows like a river. You must order your water like this: “aqua sin gaz,” which means still water. But this country is not still. Everything moves, and it moves to the rhythm of a Spanish guitar as you dance the night away meeting Spaniards and Brits who have had too much beer. Continue reading

A Sprint to a Clothing Line

Published in Pride Magazine – June 29, 2005

Ben Johnson, the fastest man in the world according to a 1988 World Record time of 9.79 seconds, is now in the clothing business.

“I just like good clothing, good fabric, good taste and I think that this type of business is the right thing for me to get involved in,” Johnson says. “I’ve done this many years ago. I’ve done this for 30 years and this isn’t the first time I’ve had my own clothing line. In 1987 I had my own clothing line in Italy and it didn’t really take off because of the public. So I decided to come back 18 years later and do my own stuff.” Continue reading

References from the novel will show how Terry Otten is incorrect. Continue reading
