Directed by Indigenous Filmmakers in Canada

This is an attempt to collect a list of films directed by Indigenous filmmakers in Canada.

Although I appreciate that there are films directed by other settler filmmakers about indigenous experience, this list's purpose is to spotlight the Indigenous Cinema and its directors in Canada. There are other good list covering this on Letterboxd.

Please note: This is a work in progress, please suggest titles and I will add them.
