Jemmy Echaquan Dubé was born in Joliette and is Atikamekw. She lived in Manawan until she was six and then moved back to Joliette. She studied Visual Arts at the Cégep de Trois-Rivières and has a real passion for all forms of art from photography to painting, cinema, music and dance. She is now a professional film editor and has worked on many corporate videos for OXFAM Québec, Quebec Native Women, etc. She also gives outreach workshops on First Nations to non-Indigenous people. Her first visit to the UN's Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in 2017 inspired her to mobilize other Indigenous youth to become leaders and to understand their rights.

She is also an intern at the NFB and the spokesperson for the Quebec-Labrador First Nations Youth Network.
