Meky Ottawa

Meky Ottawa I am an Atikamekw from Manawan. I was raised by my badass grandmother. We spent a lot of time in the forest because it was so peaceful and calm there. I was never afraid of anything with her around. She helped me become who I am today. When I was about 13, I would take my mother’s camera and shoot made-up news reports and even horror movies. That is how my interest in filmmaking started. I have created shorts for Wapikoni Mobile, designed album covers, and filmed a report for the Radio-Canada series 8e feu on women who do beadwork. I now work as an illustrator for a production company in Montreal.
