In 2011, we worked with Disney/ABC to have an intensive workshop for Native American actors. In 2012, we worked with NBCUNIVERSAL to advance our acting program to have actors work with the network casting department.
In 2013, we launched the SKINS COMEDY SKETCH SHOWCASE. This is a new event to the Native American community and the first of it’s kind. The showcase is designed to highlight talented Native Americans actors who want to further their careers and desire more exposure at the network and studio level.
Typically, Native Americans have limited access to these types of opportunities. This initiative will give them another outlet to apply their craft, In addition to supporting the actors, this type of showcase will help erase stereotypical portrayals of Native Americans by portraying us in a new, original, and humorous manner.
