a call out you know the hairs on the back of my neck would start rising a little bit higher a little bit higher touchdown for the mars insight lander on monday as suggested by the center mation touchdown transparent. that insights first photo from its new home the elysium planet sia using a two meter robotic arm a seismometer and other instruments in sight will dig a hole five meters deep so it can record so-called mars quakes and calculate just how hot the red planet's inner layers get they want to understand why mars which once may have been habitable by life is no longer wonderful nasa scientists say this data will help them understand more about mars origins and perhaps about the earth as well and boost u.s. efforts to get humans on mars by the twenty thirty s we can actually begin to
1:18 pm
estimate you know which ones might be happy to pull and which ones maybe not habitable based on some of the geophysical understanding that will get just by looking at mars. the stuff of the atmosphere if sending insight to mars was the hard part one nasa scientist says it's only going to get harder but that first photo will be a big help everyone gathered around the very front and was immediately deciding where to replace instruments and this is a great indication we were all certain that that first image would help us determine how difficult of a job we would have in placing the instruments and i'm very happy that it looks like we'll be able to add to it quite easily we hope the payoff is already coming in a second photo taken by one of two mini communication satellites that flew within sight . this. and the prospect of future discoveries have these scientists celebrate before they get back to work. and washington.

1:22 pm
and in the stream today we continue our series on the view so what does an indigenous superhero actually look like and why does that representation matter i'm really could be allowed there is a lot to discuss today and i'll be looking out for your comments and your questions online. stream or join our you tube chop. in the director of the american. university of colorado in new york. indigenous representation in mainstream popular culture relegated to subplots mistakes or shamans making a brief appearance to impart some kind of wisdom indigenous community is often used to represent backwardness and complex histories of rich cultures of reduced and romanticized blocks have a look and asked studio we have back stories and characters for indigenous and first nation communities all conceived brought to us by indigenous artists
1:23 pm
and storytellers make all superhero stories and more are now being written by and for indigenous communities not tone down not furthering stereotypes they are instead building representation have a look at aragon star a kickapoo singer and writer and creator of the super indian comic series this is what you have to say. the reason i created super indian was because i was tired of seeing negative stereotypes about native americans in mainstream comics i wanted to create a character that had native american authenticity and also you know within the artwork and also within the rating as for the future of our indigenous superheroes i predict that there are going to be way more than there are now they're going to be more complex mar shades of grey they'll have access to a lot of high tech they'll be futurism so it's going to be great stick around
1:24 pm
you're going to want to see what we do. our again stuff if i have a day some time off you can come see thank you for that great start to rush oh there's so much to talk about joining us from albuquerque new mexico we have lee francis he's the c.e.o. publisher of native reality he also founded the indigenous comic con that's how the new mexico in the united states in silverdale washington state jeffrey very is a native american comic artist and designer and in winnipeg canada sonja ballantine is a writer and filmmaker welcome to the stream all of you so i love this what does that . make it so yeah that is the wrong way to start with conversation doing it right back to you so when it comes to comic influences our community has a lot to say and we asked them which character stand out for them erin in there's a gateway from the x.-men series and for our audience that isn't familiar with
1:25 pm
gateway this is him from the marble fandom universe he's an indigenous australian and this is a closer look at gateway li is this character stand out for you when it comes to a good indigenous superhero. i think there's a bunch of things that i thing where they where i really appreciate the ways in which. you know a lot of stuff that came out of marvel and folks because we were writing or drawing that but. you know i think even to my you know my my business relations there's still control units around the character you know the idea of of. you know sort of that aboriginal. you know the things that we've seen throughout their history being used sort of the power base i think is a double edged sword and i think that you know what we've really been trying to just be about really intentional about in in our representations not only through what we publish but also when we're trying to bring in you know compare everybody like we actually with these positions. so now i want to show you
1:26 pm
a cow it took from your childhood it's the green power ranger i have him here on my laptop when i show you well the green power ranger how on earth is he connected talk conversation that we're having right now tell us well well i found out recently that. tommy oliver was supposed to be worse is an indigenous character and i i didn't know that when i was a child i don't i don't either. i know if i knew that as a kid because i was like he was the most popular ranger and still is one of the most popular power injures and i'm like he was in a bit like that so who looked. like i think that's one of my one of my clever introduces bait is. secretly native when i have a credit talk about how i consider spock from star trek a native person ok yeah and it's really interesting to me to have that aspect is
1:27 pm
because like who else could deal with being both vulcan and human being and having so i was like of course he will never found out what his mom was what background is so mike ok she's great i decided it i say oh it's like i'm like you i've always associated spark just being because my my father's non-native and my mom's do so coming from two worlds you are. yeah. that's a great compliment. but yeah i feel same way i've always felt like spock was a kindred spirit yeah that's one of the big things for me with spock is that he's both feeling with not being balkan and not them not being human enough and i've always felt that one aspect of native the native experience not being native enough because you can't speak your own language but not being white enough because you're so different everybody else so it's like i don't know anderson why there aren't more nicci people like native people into star trek i felt like the only one for
1:28 pm
a long time when i was in. but why not only ask that you might. like i did i felt that way with like you know my dad was just like a super cycle i think and and so it was i think it was this wonderful precedent that was set in our house will this like being native nurture being dative tear was not something that was foreign to me especially when reading comics my dad was a huge reader so didn't matter if you know i was going out reading comics he was like you know he got something because you can read and it's awesome you know i mean this stuff it was like cool there's now i like over the past couple years like a look at all these native nerds will be there around right now. or i met currently reading an article about. visiting cons and the most of the con in my city did not have very many native people going to let until very recently and it's and felt like that again when i was a little kid being the only star trek nerd in northern manitoba itself like oh my
1:29 pm
god like i'm the only one wire there anymore but just like and so it's very cool to see that it's becoming more acceptable to be a nerd because where some of the nerdiest people in the world so i don't know why i had this well i would add is that all right guys let's let's let me get some juice out of here what makes an indigenous superhero fantasy what are the ingredients that you need to have to make them native fascination indigenous. well our one of the first ones i think is like a lot of a lot of superheroes in general suffer loss and that always made such a big impact on me because i'm like well why. as indigenous people we have suffered so much loss and asked so why aren't we indigenous why aren't we superheroes yet like asking for a man who has lost this planet wonder woman lost her home because she had to leave quite a man lost his family and it's like why i think this is still it's so easily transferred
1:30 pm
to us so i don't understand why we aren't heroes yet in that universe. so i don't know what you're saying there sonja about what you see a superhero having in their background but unfortunately our audience says too often they look like this this is a lean on twitter saying often they're limiting depictions of natives to old mystical indian or noble savage stereotypes and that's incredibly harmful and leads people to believe that we're stuck in the past and capable of adapting to modern times and alina goes on to say there are certain spiritual and ceremonial aspects that are also seen as a private thing and many native cultures so they can't be accurately depicted in comics which leads to bad and or append indian depictions of spirituality even when this is a part of the characters and background so jeffrey i wonder if you can pick up on that the heart. and i think lee touched on that a little bit earlier when he talks about it's a double edged sword we have some fantastic things fantastic symbolism fantastic
1:31 pm
spirituality in our culture when it's misrepresented the way it has been it becomes either a really bad cliche or a bad negative stereotype so when you have a native creator coming in there and he's in fusing his or her culture into his characters people might see that is oh that's just adding the stereotype with the reality is you know this is how it's properly done jeffrey. you know i was. it's going to add to i think that partly it's it's about the lived experience when it's a non-native writer what they're looking at is the is the binge fringe bettors and and food right so they're going to add the tropes because it looks cool and i like cool characters i think they're really i mean you know there's there's really amazing things that can come out of that from the imagination but when i write and i write characters in the people that we try to engage each.
1:32 pm
oh yeah. i hear what you're saying. to me it's i'm just going to jump over to something for a moment because you talk about creating characters so new this is exactly what you've been doing have a look here this is kerry barry lynn it's a children's book. they want how does that fit into what we're talking about right now because you're creating characters that work for all the people like you and youngsters growing up right now i think a lot of my work is autobiography autobiographical in terms of. write and i write with the plan of what did i want to see when i was a little kid and so i write with that intention always and sometimes it. i'm really surprised by how non-stereotypical things could come out for me or sometimes so your typical things could come about and so like i'm creating a superhero right now called thunderbird who was in my first film and there's a whole section where they create her costume and the entity that is her coffee
1:33 pm
decides that it likes a mole so it makes her costume look like a. design and there's a whole scene where maggie who is the thunderbird she says like what i'm creating i can't have a height across the open like her or her sentience symbol symbiont cos there was like no no it's fine well we'll deal with this later and i'm like uh correct so it's like coming up with stuff that got me angry to you as a kid like well and i hated seeing fathers i hated being seen as lake shy and or apache when i am a creep person so it's like i really want to eliminate that pan indian idea sure jeffrey you are people who know some of your stories and know some of your art how do you approach knowing that you come with you come to the table with some real integrity and then what do you do with your art. he walked gingerly and boldly at the same time. i want people to see that the native voice is
1:34 pm
behind but i also want to see the characters he said their characters just as much as they're mine they're part of our pop culture history and so that recognition is there soon as you see that and whether you're dative or you're not this is just me showing a native voice to these characters and i've been on or been lucky enough to be able to work on very a lot of the ones that i had loved as a child it's just been fantastic journey for me. here when. you know marc he made before that was one of my favorite pieces of art that i ever saw like and the way i posted on twitter too but i love the superman the way you do it because to me superman is a native person like in all aspects that skin color so it's a scene that almost made me want to cry cause i'm like i do. appreciate it you know like i said i be honest i just want to have fun but i also want people
1:35 pm
to know where i'm come from and i'm proud of where i come from natives we have a rich culture we have much to offer the world in we're just people are just now starting to recognize and see the tip of that giant iceberg that's just looming out there we. again i feel let the problem teach this because and. in our guts to last i feel that we often felt that seeing native people get relegated to the past made us feel so strange in terms of how like well i'm a modern native but i don't exist in the media so lake am i weird and so seeing nerdy creature i mean really creatures nerdy natives on t.v. was something that was really cool to me because i lost my mind there's a show in canada called corner gas that has an indigenous character named davis who is a police chief and police sergeant and there's this whole conversation you has where he's talking that you're off. another person in need and he's talking about
1:36 pm
battlestar galactica i was like oh. so happy about that so i love those little jim just things you love that you love seeing them. oh yeah and it's so much that i love this. is our native american. so i want to jump in here because i want to bring our community back in this is a conversation that if you are having about why it's important to have indigenous creator behind the scenes so wish i had done twitter says marvel they have a new or character out and they said that marvel has a bigger responsibility then to hire native writers and artists their most recent character is based on innuit culture and they did consult with a native person for it but consultation is not enough it's a free pass that they did their homework so that's a critique and i'll show you that character in just a moment but i want to bring this tweet in next because dale here on the other side of that debate says we as
1:37 pm
a native writers and illustrators now have the resources to publish and distribute on our own terms we no longer have to wait for anyone to give us permission or give us room at events like comic-con we're changing it our selves so you can see the marvel character behind me but lee i want to go to you with this conversation talking about is it the duty of these bigger houses like marvel or d.c. comics to include these voices or is it up to indigenous communities themselves i think we make our own path and we know that there's a market through this. and how we're going to go out but i also think that my main thing and i agree with the show you are not is. too often you've been serving as consultants in these ways you know listen jack is amazing you know and should be should have. been.
1:38 pm
we don't need we we're losing a little bit of you i'm so sorry about that let me just show you what part of what he does he has a bookstore the is dedicated to indigenous comics and fantasy and graphic novels and some of the tunnels a really important titles then more important titles but i want to point out a couple of the we have code talkers here and then we also have deal women a vignette these are stories that are really important that to be told in the not the kind of so is the of to make into comics. yeah yeah i think this is that's the we're going to make our own ways. we want to. work that i've been able to be a part of i was going to wait around for anybody we just decided to start up wishing and start a comic-con and open. got it yeah. i actually wanted to go to comic-con when i first heard of it and my first film actually
1:39 pm
played there and i was so set i couldn't go because i that wasn't i made my first film crash site with the intention of it going to places like indigenous comic-con and so it's really important to me that these places exist but yeah i agree with reed that we often had to make our make our own way into these events and because there's a thirst for this work but i think there's a lot of problems with places like marvel or d.c. where they're like well that's too nice of a market lake who are people other than native people going to buy these books and it's it's such a it seems like such a wall we still have to climb because i'm like you know with the success of things like black panther people don't believe like the big places the big publishing houses don't believe that there's chances of success with such a market. so in making your own way i want to pivot on not because we got this comic lives on you tube this is the walker who says why do we need fictional
1:40 pm
superheroes only those who feel inferior need heroes only those who feel inferior see others as super so that's an interesting comment there he's getting a lot of the this person is getting a lot of feedback on you tube a lot of superhero been times in our community do you keep that in mind this point in mind because i want to play a video comment from jay who's that algonquin artist and a writer out of canada and this is why he says we need the superheroes. quae james and there's the guns home and he was jailed you're going to go good writer artist producer comic creator from the killer guns even if not the community i wrote and drew created a graphic novel called could go either even though as leader of the after the two television series that airs in canada the united states and australia also drew book called black lies by author robert march there was a national bestseller why does representation matter simply put we can't let our kids and business children and people of color grow up in a world where the only way they ever see themselves represented in the media and pop culture is that's the bad guys or even worse the comic relief so if you're
1:41 pm
thinking about a career in comics you might get involved in the media we need your voice now more than ever because right now anything's possible of i did it so can you so i look forward to watching your shows reading your books get in the mix we need you piece . yeah jay's said it will cause i wish he had been on here because i wanted to tell him how much i wish i had existed when i was a kid because if i'd seen that i would have like lost my mind i'm like this one that put a kid on to read. like a fairy to yell but it was so cool to see like i think we need heroes because. no one asks so why people need superman nobody asks why we need bad memory just do because they inspire us you aim higher and i think with at lake with the three of x. that we're kind of inspiring younger kids to go into it because i didn't see any writers growing up that were native and it's really important to me to show kids that they
1:42 pm
can be thanked other than nurses and doctors and lawyers like we can be a lot of different thank you both so in part let me see that. i think heroes are important because they reflect who we are they are the epitome of what we hope to be as as a people as per people there that you're. so you have a native hero you want that native hero to put in my eyes everything that is great wonderful about our culture we need those the symbols of champions of who where we come from to feed you know i was thinking about when i was looking you were looking at the amazing at least been doing in the sun has been doing is that from my study of those two cultures and different communities indigenous communities that culture the history the spiritual physicians there's so much better stronger more amazing well magical than any superhero story that i've ever seen already mcgrane the culture what do you need made us and that's what you. mean if anything that i've
1:43 pm
ever seen in d.c. all malvo all and any of those big mainstream ones you have those superheroes already. culture who already doing magical things and they're not even magical things this is what they did and i think that's where we're heading i think we're certain to see that right now i think that if you look back at a lot of the a lot of the heroes that we we see that the comic pages today derive from stories greek myths different other mythologies still we're now allowed because of weight things are today were loud to share and build off of our own culture and our own mythologies developed worlds. and villains the way we see the way that we from the stories that we know. we're just start to seem to you know jeff and i want to bring this in from amanda she's a teacher and she's uses indigenous comics in her teaching material she says my students are mostly non-native and they have very little knowledge about living
1:44 pm
indigenous peoples we climb this hill together to bring them into reality and a better understanding and i often start with a collection like moon shot might start with six killer she gives a couple examples and says just reading and engaging with comments by indigenous writers and authors versus student expectations the native peoples are no longer here. and the resulting discussion usually lacks defensiveness so limited that to you because this is important for all audiences she's saying yeah yeah big it is six it was my my work and i wanted to sense you know native folks that are better done that's another part think that we've been trying to accomplish with this work in a manner points out a lot of other folks pointed out is that the pop culture isn't a sheet of native people sort of get stuck in the western and various western motifs and so what you end up with is is this i if. it was for all i know lee's attorney jeffrey you can finish the sentence i know you're
1:45 pm
all right so here's what i think might happen that there might be this tension happening between mainstream comics and graphic novels and then what you want to do as artists who happen to be indigenous and you would be seen that fight or can everybody together jeffrey and sunny oh yes i think everybody can work together if we have a healthy respect towards each and every culture that it's possible that. it's being done we just need to see more of it so. yeah i agree with that with that like people were thinking that black panther the movie was all they could be for people of africa and the santo are black are people that are black but everybody from a variety of cultures love that movie like i remember seeing at my almost started around dance in the theater so i saw a lot of my own culture in that movie and like the importance of our own stuff and so i believe that global yet any representation any group that isn't just
1:46 pm
a default caucasian is like something that we all love i mean people feel that just because a picture is one of the time to fly it's what they are now it's over to people who so talented in the future. jeffrey and son will thank you for being part of the story today thank you thank you will. january who says there are so many superheroes in our communities that are on song and comics are how we hope for youth to imagine new heroes from a cultural base thank you so much for watching we will see you next time take everybody. on counting the cost breaking the rules italy wants to spend its way out of an economic slump but it's up to its eyes in debt a big cryptocurrency selloff and
