Forget Mascots. The Native Representation TV Needs

Mar 12, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Despite a largely untold history of erasure and violence against their community, Native Americans are still here — leading and contributing to our society every day. And while gains continue to be made in representation from Capitol Hill to Hollywood, expanding the narrative for Native Americans in media has a long way to go. TV is still one of our most powerful mediums and Native creators are breaking through with the untold and diverse perspectives of their community to create programming with the power to influence audiences from all walks of life.
