“Honest, emotional and inspiring” is how Inez Jasper of Chilliwack is describing the whole film experience she recently had with documentary series about youth, music and global activism.

She will be featured in an episode of MTV’s Rebel Music: Native America this week.

She’s totally “stoked” to have been selected as one of the four native artists across North America, “to share my music and message of positive images of Indigenous women to the world,” she wrote in a release this week.

The pop powerhouse from Chilliwack who grew up with strong Sto:lo cultural roots has been vocal about Canada’s shameful record on missing and murdered aboriginal women.

“It was an incredible journey to be involved in this project. I had the pleasure to meet Nataanii Means, Mike Cliff and Frank Walh in New York at the Climate March.

“The MTV film crew followed each of us to our home communities, reservations and performances to profile our lives, careers and key messages.”

For the first time, the untold stories behind the statistics will be brought to life in the documentary film Rebel Music: Native America.

“We are proud to be able to articulate one of the great untold stories of America with the support of the Native American community,” said Nusrat Durrani, SVP of Viacom Media Networks, GM of MTV World and the creator of the Rebel Music series. “Viewers in the U.S. and beyond will be surprised and moved by the young artists in this film who are taking charge of their destiny and creating a new narrative for their people.”

Rebel Music: Native America is one of a six-part series of documentary films about youth, music and global social change, focused on youth protest movements in the most challenging and turbulent parts of the world.

The episode will launch exclusively on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 1 p.m. on MTV’s Facebook page.
