Red Man Laughing - Reclaiming Culture & Story Through New Media & Comedy W/Sterlin Harjo & Ryan McMahon
In this episode of the Red Man Laughing Podcast we take you back inside the walls of the 6th Annual Indigenous Writers Gathering. This time we bring you to the panel talk featuring Sterlin Harjo (Director/Writer/Producer) and Ryan McMahon (Comedian/Writer). During this panel they talk about the influence new media has played in the reclaiming of culture and story as it pertains to the empowerment of communities and performance groups like the 1491's and in Ryan's standup comedy career.
Throughout the talk - both Sterlin and Ryan go back to responsibility and community and why it's so important to understand why it's so important to understand the responsibility artists hold today in Indian Country.
Also on the podcast this week - we're excited to welcome back the incredible musical talents of Silver Jackson! We're honoured to drop a couple of unreleased tracks that you're going to hear on Silver's new album due out in early 2014.
