Sheyahshe on NPR's 'Native America Calling'

I'm pleased to announce that I will be on the Native America Calling show on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 from 1pm - 2pm EST.
Native American characters can be seen in video games like "Turok - Dinosaur Hunter," "Mortal Kombat" and "Gun." Comic books also feature a large cast of Native characters dressed in the stereotypical feathers, leathers and war paint. Do you take pride when you come across a Native character in popular culture even though it does not look like a person from your tribe? Do Native Americans perpetuate the mythical Native character they claim to despise? Guests include Michael Sheyahshe (Caddo) Author of Native Americans in Comic Books

Man, it was great hearing about your research, your book, and your thoughts on Native folks in comics! Will be on the look out for it.
