“Today, there is so much negative news reported about Native communities,” says Thunder. “I am proud to say that “Native Report” brings positive stories about tribes and peoples-–our rich histories, cultures and traditions, including lively discussions about contemporary issues-–to an overwhelmingly appreciative audience.”
Recently, Thunder acted in her first feature-length independent film as “Julie” in “Cold Feet,” a romantic comedy that channels the Hepburn/Grant films of the 1940s. She also was cast as the host and narrator of the film, “America’s Last Frontier: Melting the Hearts of Men,” an important documentary on the U.S. establishment and protection of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and as host of “Native Children’s Survival,” a feature-length documentary presentation of that organization’s projects.
In addition to her roles in television and film, Thunder also has served as executive producer of three CDs: “Painting the World”; “P. Town Boyz”; and “Native Children’s Survival: if not now, when? if not you, who?”
