For 15 years, Danielle Rochette worked as a journalist and correspondent in Quebec for APTN National News, the Aboriginal Peoples' Television Network, the first national Aboriginal network in the world.
She has traveled throughout Quebec to meet the people of 11 different nations who are too often forgotten and invisible to the general public.
Thanks to her numerous stories, she has been able to make known not only the many issues facing Aboriginal communities, but also their creative potential in music, visual arts and filmmaking.
In 2018, Danielle also hosted APTN Perspectives, a program dedicated to documentary filmmakers.
A graduate of Concordia University, Danielle was born in Quebec City to a Huron-Wendat mother and a Quebecois father. Curious about her origins, she has been involved in numerous Aboriginal organizations such as Quebec Native Women and Terres en Vues, a society for the dissemination of Aboriginal culture who was the driving force being the International Festival Présence Autochtone.
Retired since 2019, Danielle has not ceased to be curious and passionate about native peoples and their many expressions of artistic and creative vitality.
