Sarah Podemski is an Anishinaabe/Ashkenazi multidisciplinary artist from Toronto. From her first role in the German TV series Blue Hawk at the age of 11, to her award-winning performance in the TIFF selection Mekko (directed by Sterlin Harjo), Sarah has been passionate about recreating the Indigenous narrative that has been misrepresented since the beginning of cinema. Sarah’s many credits include CBC’s The Coroner, Syfy’s Resident Alien and, most recently, the Peabody and Independent Spirit Award-winning series, Reservation Dogs created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi.

Sarah is also the owner of Totem Designs where she creates one-of-a-kind dreamcatchers with a modern twist. She was proud to represent this traditional artform as one of five Indigenous artists out of 800 artisans at the 2019 One of a Kind Show in Toronto and was featured in the 2019 Christmas Gift Guide on HGTV.com.
