Martha Stiegman

Martha Stiegman is a passionate and engaged community-media and documentary filmmaker. Currently based in Toronto where she teaches at York University’s Faculty of Environmental Studies, her work has screened in festivals around the world from Tunisia and New Zealand to Brazil. Her first two documentaries, In Defense of our Treaties (2007) and The End of the Line (2007) explore alliances between Mi’kmaq and non-native fishing communities in her home province of Nova Scotia. Honour Your Word (2013) is an intimate, behind the blockades portrait of the Algonquins of Barriere Lake and their fight to defend their traditional lands. Indigenous struggles and non-native solidarity have been the focus of Martha’s film work, community-arts practice and academic research for more than ten years.
