Personal Quote:

It shouldn't be a novel concept but it is; the concept of hiring an American Indian to assist producers, directors, studios and television networks locate and hire American Indian talent for their productions and projects. It's time for that to change and I am more than ready, willing and able to enact that change.

Trivia:

Michelle R. (Hall) Shining Elk is a commodity fed and rez raised American Indian - she's an enrolled member of the Colville Tribes (Arrow Lakes & Okanogan Bands) of the Colville Indian Reservation, Washington State. Her mother has represented their tribe as both the Executive Director and Tribal Councilwoman.
