Author: Austin Josephson

Hello! My name is Austin Josephson. I am from Regina Saskatchewan and am proud to be part of the 2016 Indian Communication Arts (INCA) Summer Institute. I am Metis and spirituality is a large part of my life. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Production, with a Minor in Indigenous Studies in 2015 from Luther College at the University of Regina. My experience taking Indigenous Studies classes through the First Nations University of Canada is one I will never forget. Each class I took helped me explore who I am as a person, as well as the world around me. I have an interest in telling stories through documentary filmmaking and INCA has allowed me to tell stories through journalism. My interests are writing, researching, archiving, and interviewing. I am also a Youth Reconciliation Leader with Canadian Roots Exchange, working with Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in Regina. I have met some amazing people through the INCA Summer Institute and they have fostered in me a strong interest in journalism. Having the opportunity to write stories about the 40th Anniversary of the First Nations University of Canada has been a rewarding experience. I hope to use the knowledge and skills I have obtained through this institute either in filmmaking or journalism.
