Native Americans and Zombies will come together on this Friday’s episode of the SyFy channel’s Z Nation. The SyFy series, which portrays a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies, will feature Native actors protecting their homelands in an episode entitled, “We Were Nowhere Near the Grand Canyon”, at 10 pm.

 Z Nation, a television series on the SyFy Network that portrays a cast of zombie-fighters who must transport a virus survivor from New York to California in an attempt to find a zombie cure, will be joined by Native actors Eddie Spears, Gene Tagaban, Tonantzin Carmelo, Tinsel Korey and Jeff Barehand.

Juan Mas, the director of ZNation told ICTMN they had discussed doing an episode featuring Indian Country previously but things didn’t work out. “Karl Schaefer came up with the idea, we wanted our cast to travel to the Grand Canyon and we wanted to introduce a Native American element,” Mas told ICTMN.

“Even though we are a production that likes to make fun of itself, we wanted to maintain respect for Native culture. I am a minority myself as a Cuban and Colombian,” said Mas.
