My name is Douglas Rain Charger and I am a member of the Itazipcola band of the Lakota tribe. I was born and raised on the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe reservation and received my Bachelor's in American Indian Studies from Haskell Indian Nations University in Spring 2017. My work and research is based on issues that face Native Americans, particularly the issues of self-determination, language preservation and positive media representation. I practice my field by performing with my band, The Red and Blues, in which we perform music with Native American themes from a Native perspective. I attend the University of Kansas as a graduate student in the Indigenous Studies department. I am focusing on media that relates to Indigenous issues as well as media made by Indigenous peoples.
