Petie is a Cree filmmaker from Northern Alberta. She has chosen to be a filmmaker because it is a powerful and creative medium to shed light upon the realities of the social issues that surround the world we live in today from an Indigenous perspective. Petie graduated with her Bachelors of Motion Picture Arts in January 2017 from Capilano University’s Bosa Centre for Film and Animation. Petie was also selected to be the very first Indigenous Valedictorian for Capilano University's convocation in June 2017.
In 2019 Petie was one of the first Indigenous women selected to be a part of the very first cohort of the Pacific Screenwriting Program – Scripted Lab Series where she spent ten weeks learning under award winning show runner, Sarah Dodd. Through their time together they worked on an eight-part, crime drama, limited series titled “City Of Gardens” where Petie wrote episode 106. In addition to writing an episode for Sarah’s up and coming tv show, Petie is also working on her own original eight-part dramatic television series titled “Woke”. Petie is a force for bringing beautiful, powerful and compelling stories that help move and educate people to make this a better world.
