“I’m thrilled to kick off this edition of CBC New Indigenous Voices with this talented group,” says program manager Sarah Simpson-Yellowquill. “I love the different levels of experience everyone brings to the table. It’s always an honour to watch participants grow as storytellers through this program.”

CBC New Indigenous Voices begins with a series of online training sessions featuring interactive group discussions, presentations and workshops. The program culminates in a final podcast project and a six-week internship placement. The curriculum is designed with traditional and spiritual elements, and participants are paid minimum wage throughout.

Previous internship hosts include Eagle Vision, CBC Manitoba, Kejic Productions, Winnipeg Film Group, Native Communications Society of the Northwest Territories and various film sets.

Faculty includes program advisor and alumna Erica Daniels (CBC New Indigenous Voices, NSI IndigiDocs and Manitoba Content Creators Development Accelerator), Indigenous training programs advisor Lisa Meeches (NSI Storytellers) and program manager Sarah Simpson-Yellowquill.
