Need Native action flix

Beefcake and Action and Locker-room Jokes.  Native Style[W]ouldn’t you love to see an Indian Van Helsing and Wonder Woman; a Native Bruce Lee, Jim Carrey, Jackie Chan or Vin Diesel? Wait, scratch Diesel, …we don’t need another one of him. How about a superhero?

Some of these genres for an underfunded filmmaker are achievable; others, more difficult. Undoubtedly, the current and developing crop of Native screenwriters and directors and actors have the talent to step up to the challenge and they are out there, believe me, trying and trying to break through.

FYI, the illustration is by Ryan Huna Smith, who also drew TRIBAL FORCE.
