Through much of his life, Migizi Pensoneau was keenly aware of the mis-representation or lack of representation of Native Americans in the media. He’s now a screenwriter and producer who works toward righting the wrongs of mainstream media. His comedy group, The 1491s, creates and distributes content that shines a light on Native American stereotypes and inspires cultural awareness, cultivating social change and deeper understanding through comedy and other avenues.
