Ego of a Nation is a video poem featuring poetry of the same title from the book of the same title which represents a creative reaction to centuries of court injustice experienced by Indigenous peoples more specifically the acquittal of Colten Bouchie's murder.


Director's Bio: Wes Day: At the age of 18, I received some basic training in mixed media in Six Nations Ontario and shorty after, enrolled and graduated from Canadore College in North Bay Ontario for Television Broadcasting and Video Production.Having completed my education, I decided to test the waters, resulting in the first indigenous zombie film which I entered in the ImagineNATIVE film festival in 2009. Afterwards, I worked at the Oneida Language and Cultural Centre in Oneida Nations of the Thames Settlement. Our work was mainly to restore the Oneida Language and ways to living through various forms of media. Our projects ranged from dramatic films, documentaries and podcasting.

I currently reside in Six Nations Ontario where I freelance with various individuals and organizations to tell their stories.
