A Tribe of One features archival images and compelling interviews as it captures Rhonda Larrabee’s quest to unearth the Indigenous heritage her mother felt forced to hide from her. Now, as proud Chief of the New Westminster Band, she works tirelessly to revitalize the Qayqayt First Nations. It was produced as part of Reel Diversity, an initiative organized in partnership with CBC Newsworld.

Between: Living in the Hyphen examines what it means to have a background of mixed ancestries that cannot be easily categorized. By focusing on 7 Canadians who have one parent from a European background and one of a visible minority, she attempts to get at the root of what it means to be multi-ethnic in a world that wants each person to fit into a single category.
