So the pics on Alex Meraz MySpace profile where he is floating are real. They were taken by Native American photog ‘Anthony “Thosh” Collins’. I just had to clear that up. Cause he’s mid air!!! You can also see Alex in the 2006 and 2008 “21st Century Skins Calendar” produced by Shaunya Manus of Viewfinder Productions, Inc. And who could forget this world famous shot taken by Mihio Manus.
Ok, back on track…
Alex speaks on his culture and where he is from. Kiowa represents his tribe by wearing a t-shirt from The Hualapai Tribal Nation.
There is so, so, so much talk in this video about Native Americans, mainstream media and being comtemporary.
