Biography

Jemmy Echaquan Dubé is Atikamekw from Manawan. She grew up in her community in Manawan until she was six years old before moving to Joliette with her mother and three brothers. At the age of 14, she returned to Manawan to relearn her language. She studied visual arts at the Cégep de Trois-Rivières and is passionate about all forms of art such as photography, painting, film, music and dance. She was a professional editor and worked on several corporate projects for different organizations. Jemmy also gives awareness workshops for non-Indigenous. Her participation in the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in 2017-2018 inspired her to sensitize Indigenous youth on becoming leaders and being aware of their rights. She did an internship at the National Film Board of Canada and is currently a spokesperson for the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Youth Network. With many strings to her bow, Jemmy has several forthcoming projects on her mind, from writing to directing and music. Lately, we see her in a leading role as Daisie Flamand in the series Fugueuse.
