    Inspired by the story of Dr. Lillian Eve Quan Dyck, Shelley Niro’s latest feature drama, Café Daughter, follows 9-year-old Yvette Wong’s journey in the small town of Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan. She is the daughter of a Cree mother and Chinese Canadian father and works in their café in the evenings after school. After a brief, tumultuous trip to their reserve, Yvette’s mother makes Yvette and her brother Charlie hide their Indigeneity to avoid the prevalent racism in their town.

    Destination Greater Victoria is honoured to be based on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples of the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
