Why Tequila like the drink? Because people either pronounce my name wrong or misspell my name so I figured what the hey, I have one of the coolest names on the planet, why not rock it even if it’s spelled Tekeyla but pronounced like the Mexican drink.
What is Tequila Friday Studios? It’s the seedling for a much bigger picture that I hope to bring about for the well being of Saskatchewan arts, media, the Métis Nation, and myself.
I work with claymation and thanks to the Saskatchewan Arts Board for the generous grant, and the support from amazing people like Barbara Reid (children’s author), Kim Houghtaling (Director and Curator of Art Gallery Of Swift Current) and the Chinook Regional Library, I can now plant the first seed of this big dream.
Over this past year and heading into 2019, I am putting together twenty-four scenes based on my Métis heritage and the history of the Métis people in my area. This project is dear to my heart because my mom, Glenda (Dumont) Friday raised me to be proud of my culture.

I wanted TF Studios but that was already taken.
