Lorne Olson

Lorne Olson was raised in the Brokenhead Ojibway Nation in Manitoba—and at various points in his life has described himself as Métis, Oji-Cree, Indian or Aboriginal. This shifting sense of identity informs Apples & Indians (2006), a playful short made through the NFB’s First Stories initiative. With Second Stories: Deb-we-win Ge-ken-am-aan – Our Place in the Circle (2008), he pursues this interest in identity, celebrating Indigenous expressions of gender diversity. He has worked in various capacities on several APTN programs, including La Voix de Mechif and The Sharing Circle, and was a producer on the CBC radio program ReVision Quest.
