LeMay, Matthew., Native Young! (Musical group)., First Nations Films.
"Raunchy and upbeat and reaching a youth audience - Native Young! is told thru the eyes of a native Punk Rock Band and explores the lingering and damaging effects that residential schools still have on generations of First Nation communities, it challenges difficult and confusing Canadian political views and highlights other challenges faced by many native people in Canada. The band's experience of growing up, working and living on reserve, is featured while the band's music - unapologetic and ferocious - provides a dramatic musical landscape for the film. This film is the first in a series that will provide First Nations youth an unfiltered lens to share their stories."
