Saginaw Grant (Sac & Fox Nation) is now a lego for his role of Chief Big Bear in The Lone Ranger.
THE RED ROAD is a hard-hitting drama that revolves around a local cop struggling to keep his family together while policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up and the neighboring mountains, home of a Native American tribe. After a terrible tragedy and coverup occurs involving the cop’s wife an unholy alliance is forged between the cop and an ex-con, a dangerous member of the tribe that will come back to haunt all involved.
Starring Jason Momoa (Samoan and Native American)
As far as the other cast, I see Kiowa Gordon (Twilight, The Lesser Blessed) Victor Gage (Anchorman 2) and Zahn McClarnon (Into the West) those look like they are the main Native cast. I see no Native women in the cast, unless Katy Purnell is Native?
That weaved cape is amaze!

AMC Developing Football Drama ‘The Real All Americans’
Producers are in discussions with Tommy Lee Jones to direct the pilot, about the Native American college football program that minted Olympian Jim Thorpe.

Also how hunky does Thorpe look in this picture??
I tend to try and keep up to date in what is happening in pop culture, so when I heard Brian Griffen from Family Guy died, I decided to watch the episode. (PS I thought Brian Griffen was the dad, not the dog)
Well, the start of the episode was really interesting (super offensive, but let’s be real this is not the first time Family Guy has been offensive.. to everyone)
It started with Stewie and Brian running down the street with a jeep full of Native shooting at them. Jokes about smoke signals blah blah. You then see the town full of Natives, and the characters explaining what happened. Stewie traveled back in time to 17th Century Jamestown and gave ‘guns to the Indians’
'The Indians killed all the White people and took over America”
They then head into town, which is full of Native Americans.
"You know it actually looks like the Native Americans have done well for themselves, they seem to have a lot of shops" Pans over to a Jean Jacket shop.
Then the Native medical care joke, which apparently we do yoga to cure people?
And then of course there is a ‘Heya Heya Heya” joke.
They then discuss going back to Jamestown to change what happened. They also talk about a ‘White Reservation”
"Otherwise they are going to kill us"
"Or stick us on some white people reservation"
At White People Reservation
White people on stoop. Natives in car, one tries to give money to White ppl
"Don’t give them money, they will just spend it on deviled eggs"
They then head to the Family Guy house which is now converted into a teepee. They look in and see the above picture. Jokes about corn, jokes about buffalo.
"You know how we like to take things back from you people, well we are going to go ahead and take these back"
Back to real time
"Everything looks like it should"
"There is only one way to be certain, let’s do a quick search here (on computer) Native American Role Models….Zero results found. Looks like we did it Brian"
So yup that happened.
"Native American Role Models….Zero results found"
