In September, Lovecraft Country's Misha Green admitted the show "failed" after facing backlash for HBO depicting an Arawakan Two-Spirit character who suffered a violent death in the same episode in which they were introduced. Earlier this month, David E. Kelley's Big Sky on ABC came under fire for its lack of Native and Indigenous female representation. Ian Skorodin, founder of Native American film festival L.A. Skins Fest, CEO of the Barcid Foundation and member of the Chocktaw Nation of Oklahoma, says that while studios and networks have been supportive in recent months. But he adds: "There's not parity in terms of the Native community getting an equal amount of support with what the other communities are getting."
