Sherry McKay is an Anishinabe woman from Treaty 1 Territory. Born and raised in Winnipeg, band member of Sagkeeng First Nation, proud mother of four, social media influencer and aspiring filmmaker, Sherry discovered a way to share important messages and engage in education and discussions regarding Indigenous issues such as MMIWG2S, systemic racism and cultural appropriation. It was through media she noticed a shift where Indigenous people can share and educate.
Her short period at Red River College’s Creative Communications program gave her the necessary skills to start her journey into media production. Her focus is to assert Indigenous representation in media and film. Tiktok is where she has had the biggest impact on her journey with over 500k followers. Her future aspirations are to write and direct her own movie and sitcom series with an Indigenous focus and content surrounding Indigenous comedy and awareness.
