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.
