What has been your favorite role?
Wind River: The Next Chapter. I had a part where I got to dress in regalia during my scenes.
What do you do when you are not performing?
I’m an international indigenous fashion model. I recently got back from Cannes, France after attending the Cannes Indigenous Arts & Fashion Festival where I got to model and open the show with a ceremony song. I will also be attending and handing out awards at the upcoming Edmonton Indigenous Fashion Week, later this month. I was just nominated for male model of the year, and I am hoping to be lucky enough to take this award home with me!
I am an Oskâpêwis (oska-pe-wis), and I train under a medicine man and knowledge keeper.
I am also a Pipe Carrier and I teach our youth about our traditional medicines and hide preparation.
What organization / activity are you involved with or passionate about that people would find interesting?
I’m a member of AIM – The American Indian Movement. Along with the International Indigenous Fashion Week where I attended the New York fashion week season 2 that was held in September 2023.
What Director would you like to work with?
I enjoyed working with Kari Skogland and would like to work with her again.
What is your favorite movie and/or TV show?
I’m into the Paranormal and anything with actual events.
As a Performer, what is one thing you wish you would have known sooner?
Don’t take it personal when auditioning. The director has a vision and as long as you do your best, it will be what it will be. CREATOR has a plan.
