Drew Nicholas is director and producer for "Blood Memory: A Story of Removal and Return". This decade long project is culminating with screenings in select cities and a international release on public television in 2020. The film shares perspectives and emotions of individuals taken from their tribal communities to be raised to lose their identity in boarding schools and with White families.

Drew was in his early 20's when beginning the project and is now in his 30's and a changed person. This is a conversation about a young man learning about himself while learning about and telling the stories of a community which he had no previous ties.
