Director Statement

Terry Jones is a Native American filmmaker and educator currently living on the Seneca Nation territory in Western New York. Growing up on an American Indian reservation has given Jones a unique worldview perspective. Jones has a passion for sharing Iroquois history and culture through his videos and sharing of indigenous foods. It is Jones’ intention to engage his audiences’ five senses through his work.

Jones would like to use his art as an agent of change. Like many other communities, Jones' home territory is confronted with many issues that negatively impact its quality of life (loss of language, drug abuse, diabetes, environmental dangers, public safety and injustice). It is his hope that his future film projects will promote and facilitate dialogue that can influence changes in public policy.
