  • Survey for graduating student Please help!

    Hello everyone
    I will be graduating in December with two bachelors (Mass Communication and Art).
    I am taking a last senior class on Mass Media Research and have to create a research project.
    I have made a 10 question (real quick!) survey about Native images on television. I would greatly appreciate it if you would take the time to do this quick survey.
    Thank you!

    Crazed 20 credit hour senior! help!

    more about survey

    I wanted to thank the 5 brave people that have filled out my survey, and to plead with more people to please fill it out. It's just a quick itty bitty 10 question survey.
    I thought if I told you more about me, it might encourage all these people reading this thread to do the survey.
    I'm a member of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma
    I want to write for television
    My first spec script took 3rd place in the Spec Spectacular at (you can read it there if you want)
    I want to write Native characters into regular shows to prove we A- We don't only exist before 1900
    B- We don't only exist on the rez
    C- We are not their fantasy/nightmare/whatever- we're ourselves and human
    So please help me out here
    Thank you

      I will fill it out if you want me to, but I am only "of descent" mixed race, not legally affiliated with any tribe.

        You might want to try contacting writers such as Jordan Wheeler (wrote numerous episodes for Arctic Air etc and some awesome novels) and Drew Hayden Taylor.

        There are a few associations for Native filmakers, writers and artist as well as the techie folks like camera, sound and SFX.

        Beth Brant also wrote a stunning short story on native women and their representation in the media.

        They are all approachable folks and love to speak to students who want to get into the biz.
        A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. — Robert A. Heinlein

          Thank you for taking the time to read this and give me your feedback.
          I read, in another thread, a girls' question about native American stylized tattoos. This community came down pretty harshly on her, and for good reason, as she was interested in the symbolism purely as art. And while the patterns...
