ANISHINAABE OJIBWE 2S +
Red Buffalo Nova Weipert (he/him/they/them) is an Anishinaabe Ojibwe Two-Spirit and transgender interdisciplinary artist, writer, director, educator and storyteller. Nova is a proud enrolled member of the Pinaymootang First Nation located in Treaty 2 territory, and is a recent graduate of the Master of Fine Arts program at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. As an interdisciplinary artist, they weave together a multiplicity of digital and traditional mediums such as video, photography, sound, illustration, beading, performance, and storytelling in exploring/experimenting with new modes of representation through the lens of their Anishinaabe Ojibwe lived and felt experiences. They are a long time collaborator and video mentor with Access to Media Education Society, and their film work has screened at festivals such as imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival (2021) and Vancouver Queer Film Festival (2022). They have worked as a sessional professor at ECUAD, and as a studio technician in the Film + Screen Arts department as well.
Storytelling is the driving force behind the majority of Nova’s work, whether it be sharing and uplifting under represented voices through film making, or by sharing their own lived experiences through creative expression. As an educator/storyteller, they take pride in sharing their journey, knowledge and teachings to all ages, and have performed storytelling events across Turtle Island.
