Indigenize the Narrative presented by The Syndication Project

Native American and Indigenous storytellers long preceded the days of television, but have largely been excluded from the industry, stereotyped by inauthentic storytelling, or erased from the picture altogether. However, these creatives are changing TV for the better, and reclaiming their long-overdue seat at the table. Join us for a conversation with the Native American and Indigenous actors, writers, directors, and producers that are recentering Indigenous storytelling and producing dynamic TV in the process.

Panelists: Sierra Teller Ornelas (showrunner/executive producer/co-creator, Rutherford Falls), Sydney Freeland (director, Rutherford Falls, The Wilds), Michael Greyeyes (actor, Rutherford Falls), Kimberly Guerrero (actor, Rutherford Falls, The Wilds), Migizi Pensoneau (writer, Two Sentence Horror Stories, Reservation Dogs)

Moderator: Vincent Schilling (Indian Country Today)
