    Native actors to Adam Sandler, "Our dignity is not for sale!"

    in Culture

    In news making international headlines, several Native actors were told "If you guys are so sensitive, you should leave,...", in response to their concerns of denigrating and racist portrayals of Native people. They left the production.
    Hollywood has long been known for stereotyping Native characters, or portraying the white hero who saves the day for the Natives as if they were incapable of overcoming insurmountable adversity.
    One Navajo actor, Loren Anthony, originally refused to participate in the film, but changed his mind when he was told a cultural consultant was hired to ensure a "tasteful representation" of Natives. They told me it was going to be a comedy, but it would not be racist he said. Other Native actors and actresses expressed their concern, but were ignored and told they should leave. When they left, including the consultant, the story went viral and was reported on CNN International.
    Critics say they should have expected anything different because it is satire. The definition of satire is:


    1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.


    2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.


    3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.
    Netflix, who signed Sandler defended defended him, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke."
    David Hill, Choctaw, says the producers has called back the consultant and those who left. We'll be speaking with David Hill and others about their experiences with this racial stereotyping. Please join us friday evening on Eaglemanz: Chahta Nation.

    Join famous actress, spiritual healer, author and radio host, Dee Wallace

    in Spirituality

    Thirty years ago, Dee Wallace, a gifted young actress from the wilds of Kansas, dropped into Hollywood with hopeful expectations. Two years later she landed the role of a lifetime and walked onto a soundstage knowing that playing Mary, the smart, funny young mother of Michael, Elliott and Gertie, in ET was going to change her life. 


    Wallace has never stopped working in film, television and stage, and has more than 130 films and scores of television roles and series to her credit. She is currently among a handful of in-demand actresses for guest starring roles in TV drama. Her irresistible presence on speaking forums and two top internet radio shows have made her a sought-after inspirational speaker, spiritual teacher and healer.  


    In her recently released third book, Bright Light (O-Books), she takes readers along on Wallace's emotional, spiritual and professional journey but even as we cheer for her triumphs and grieve for her unbearable losses, she doesn't allow us to sit on the sidelines as merely an audience to her life. Rather she uses her journey as a metaphor for always expanding the lessons she experienced in her own life to a larger wisdom valuable for all of us. Her gifted writing is inclusive, reaching out to connect with readers as with unflinching honesty she takes responsibility for the manifestation of pain and disappointments in her life, as well as the creation of love and happiness for its joys and successes. And she beckons her readers, who almost imperceptibly recognize their own journey, to learn from the spiritual lessons, which are the focus of each chapter.

    Focus Hollywood: Boxing In Film

    in Movies

    I was having a conversation with film analyst, Karen D. (The Movie Maven), and she mentioned flipping channels on her tv one night and catching the end of the first "Rocky" movie. As a result we've decided to have our "Focus Hollywood" segment be devoted to "Boxing In Film". Now boxing in movies didn't start with the Sylvester Stallone's film "Rocky" , but it does play a part in the vast history of boxing in cinema. So, our task is to introduce you to a few films you may not have heard of, and re-introduce you to some movies you may want to revisit again. Please take some time out to come and listen to our broadcast, and find your inner fighting spirit with "Boxing In Film".
