The Laughing Drum
Is 2016 the year Indigenous people took back Hollywood?
The Laughing Drum asks the question and discusses Adam Beach’s role in Suicide Squad, Red Harvest in The Magnificent Seven, and Moana (Disney’s not Italy’s).
Are Indigenous people in movies the new red shirts of Star Trek? The first to get killed once they’re on the planet? The Laughing Drum comedians weigh in.
The Laughing Drum panel also gets serious, for a minute or two, as one of our own discusses the heartbreak he felt when his teenaged daughter went missing for a couple of days in the past week. He’ll tell us how it happened, the response he received from authorities, and the conclusion to his experience of a parent’s nightmare.
A big hats off to Lena Recollet of Manifest Destiny’s Child for her debut Laughing Drum appearance.
