Life and Times of a Modern Day NDN Princess turned 6 today!
I can’t believe it’s been six years on this platform that I have been blogging. When I first started on tumblr, I was trying to figure out my voice. At first I was going for a more personal blog, but then I thought what did I want out there? So I switched it up, and started putting people who inspired me from NDN Country. And it all snowballed from there.
I get views from all over the World, and I feel blessed!
Thanks for being on this journey with me! To another 6!
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?
