Roseanne Supernault and Eric Schweig in a scene from “Maïna” (2012) The film also stars Tantoo Cardinal and Graham Greene. From Perspective Canada:
Following a bloody confrontation between her clan and the clan of “Men from the Land of Ice,” Maïna, daughter of Innu Grand Chief Mishtenapuu, finds herself unwillingly drawn into a mission that will change her life.
Ooh ooh ooh!
First contact stories that don’t involve white folks? DOPENESS.
did I reblog this??? so what.
It was filmed in Kuujjuak and the dogs in it are owned by an actual dog sledder, they did their research. The actors are mainly from Nunavut and they had to learn the Nunavik dialect to make their lines more seamless since Inuit have varied words. They also consulted Innu people to be as true to the cultures as they could. They hired first nations women who know how to sew and consulted elders on how to work with animal hide the way it was done before settlers. The amount of effort put into the movie is great and I can’t wait to see it.
THE INTENSITY WITH WHICH I WANT THIS HAS SURPRISED EVEN MYSELF.
The powerful ending to Janelle Monae’s (and Erykah Badu’s) song “Q.U.E.E.N.” The acronym: Queer. Untouchables. Emigrants. Excommunicated. Negroid.

Can we talk about Kevin Tran a moment, aka Advanced Placement, aka a 19 year old genius ripped from a safe suburban life and thrown into one of monsters and angels who are anything but, aka the boy who outsmarted the King of Hell, aka the boy who in the span of a year has lost literally everyone he loves including his girlfriend and mother, aka the boy who APOLOGIZES when he thinks he’s been killed and is letting Sam and Dean down simply by BEING DEAD.
I don’t know if there’s a single character on spn without a back story that’ll break your heart, but I feel like Kevin deserves a special mention because he wasn’t raised a hunter, or ever had any training in the supernatural, he was just a kid who played the cello and enjoyed learning and was looking forward to college. In short, he was just like so many us, until his life went to hell. But instead of giving up or giving in, he kept on fighting, kept on thinking and working and doing what everyone asked of him at the expense of his own sanity and health and even prepared to pay for it at the cost of his own life. All just because it was the right thing to do.
Kevin Tran is my hero.

Get it together, Steeevvveeee
Based on this text post by wasiafooltothink. I wanted to challenge myself and draw dudes. dudes with EXPRESSIONS. Never done that before, so it’s super basic (also my headcanon Cecil is a work in progress, I never draw men, period, so. I’m learning!)
