I thought everyone loved Skittles dammit?!!  Isn't every color of the rainbow beautiful- even when it's blurred on a hazy afternoon after a freak storm rain?

Joining us is Comedienne Adrianne Chalepah as she discusses what it was like growing up as a "half breed" and even how it affects her now.  While that sounds like a negative connotation, Adrianne used that as a strength among many of her experiences growing up and built a thriving career in comedy.  She'll also share what inspires her "work" and what her hopes are in sharing her gifts with the world.

Adrianne Chalepah is an American Indian (Kiowa/Apache) Entertainer from Anadarko, Oklahoma.  Growing up she experienced much hardship immersed in poverty and alcoholism; however, she believes this prepared her for a career in standup comedy and motivational speaking.  She made her first stage debut while studying filmmaking at Fort Lewis College.  She graduated Magna Cum Laude and in 2010 her comedy career took off when she teemed up with the popular comedy troupe 49 Laughs Comedy.  Since then, Chalepah's performances have gained her much recognition including opening up for the First Lady in 2012.  Adrianne is passionate about indigenous/female empowerment and has formed the world's only all-female, all-Native American comedy group- Ladies of Native Comedy.
