About Us

The Native American Media Alliance is a community based organization that provides the genuine voice of Native Americans in the entertainment industry and offers unique programs that educate the non-Native population.


The Native American Media Alliance is an intiative of the Barcid Foundation, a 501c3 Tax exempt non-profit organization based in Los Angeles. The Barcid Foundation was founded to foster understanding of the culture, traditions and issues of contemporary Native Americans. The foundation serves Native American content creators with professional development programs that include the Native American TV Writers Lab, the Native American Feature Film Writers Lab, the Native American Animation Lab, the Native American Showrunner Program, and the Native Youth Multimedia Workshop. The foundation also oversees an annual Native American film festival, the LA SKINS FEST, based in Los Angeles.  The Barcid Foundation’s goal is to utilize media as a tool for cultural, educational, technological and economic development.
