Featuring some of the most recognized Native American filmmakers, actors and casting directors working today, the discussion will focus on the growing and diverse portrayals of Native Americans in film, television and new media. Native filmmakers are creating their own projects and challenging traditional stereotyped portrayals, often bringing Native American characters into a modern light. The panel will also focus on the role of New Mexico as a hub of production for Native-themed projects, ranging from Longmire to the pilot Scalped adapted from a DC Comic book series.
