The qʷaytən, or language of Indigenous people, comes from the land. jehjeh Media has witnessed the power of story telling; to heal and connect community. We choose to share the stories of under represented people. Our work is led, and made by people from the BIPOCD(disabilities) communities. We are (re)centering the language and stories of these people for a broader audience to play our part in decolonization of media.
