Native American Culture Can Be Pop Culture, Too!
Movie and television (or should we say streaming) enthusiasts in 2022 are able to watch such Native-related programming such as “Rutherford Falls”, “Reservation Dogs,” or even watch the latest Predator film “Prey.” Disney is also currently working on Echo, a series starring a Native American and deaf actress.
On social media, you might also be familiar with such accounts as Nathan Apodaca, Notorious Cree or be familiar with Indigenous hashtags from a wide range of Native content creators on TikTok, Twitter and Instagram.
The media world was not always this friendly to proper Indigenous representation. Vincent Schilling- an Akwesasne Mohawk journalist, public speaker and editor of Native Viewpoint- will explain the volatile road Indigenous people have had to traverse over the years in the media, film and television industry and discusses how the world still has a long way to go in pop culture in terms of Indigenous representation.
This talk will be held virtually.
