Part of the Storytellers in motion series

With a mix of Cree, Ojibway, Assiniboian, English, Scottish and Irish heritage Jordan Wheeler describes himself as a "modern indigenous aboriginal native type dude." At 42, his career as a professional writer spans 25 years, beginning in print journalism at age 17. He moved to screenwriting for television with the popular series North of 60, writing there for four seasons.

This Gemini award-winner talks about different forms of writing, his methods of research, and the differences in sensibilities that distinguish the stories told by First Nations people from those coming from a Judao, Christian or Islamic background. His behind-the-scenes tour of the dramatic series RenegadePress.com gives a detailed picture of the collaborative process of writing for television. Inspiring, articulate, and engaging, Jordan Wheeler will rock your socks.
