Nick was born to a white mother of German descendents and a full blood Native American (Lakota Sioux) father. Born and raised in South Dakota, Nick also grew up in several different states such as Colorado, Iowa, Florida, Wyoming, and in several different communities in his home state. His mother, by herself, raised him and his half-sister Shawna with great love. She put herself through nursing school, and always provided the best life for Nick and his sister possible. As a result, Nick has developed profound family values of respect and closeness.
While at USD, Nick became intensely interested in certain Native American issues. One such interest was the criminal case of American Indian activist Leonard Peltier. Nick stipulated that it is a very real embodiment of the contemporary Native American experience. Not to mention, he heartedly agrees it is one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in American history – tantamount to the same effect of JFK’s assignation. Consequently, he was the first actor in the country to portray Leonard Peltier on stage. In bringing the production to stage, Nick wrote an arts grant, and produced and directed the production as well.
There are so many serious concerns to be brought to the fore in Indian country. Yet, there are very few people that can or want to navigate the course of going from concept to product. There are those that can, but Nick is looking for material that is not mainstream, romantic, or disingenuous.
Nick has first hand experience with an entity that was selling ceremony.
