Native American sketch comedy group The 1491s pokes a serious kind of fun about how they are perceived by non-Natives, but their hilarious skits don’t stop there. Using pointed cultural and political satire, they address taboo topics within their own communities. The 1491s join “The Stream” to talk about what inspires them and what it means to be Native American.
