Rick Mora Wants to Put Your Tribe on TV, and He Needs Your Help
Would you like to see a TV series that spotlights, on a weekly basis, American Indian tribes all over the United States? How's this for a bonus -- it's hosted by Rick Mora, Yaqui and Apache, an actor who is perhaps the most successful Native male model working today? Well, that's what Mora and producers have in mind with Native America, and they're looking for funding through IndieGoGo.
What is Native America? Native America is meant to inspire, educate and open the average American’s eyes to the mystery of life on a reservation and the diverse people who struggle to survive AND thrive there. Spotlighting each tribes diversity and drawing parallels to other cultures throughout America.
Each tribe is amazingly different not only in ceremonies and rituals but also with their relationship, history and treaties with the US government. Some tribes like the Seminoles are thriving while others like The Pine Ridge Reservation is one of the poorest in the United States with a 70% poverty rate and 60% of their children are in the foster care system waiting for adoption.
Why is this? Native America will shed light on these topics along with many other mysteries of Native Americans all through THEIR perspective and words.
In each episode will visit and showcase one to two tribes depending on the size of the tribe.
