Meet our Keynote Presenters

Ryan RedCorn

Ryan RedCorn (Osage) was born in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. He is the ilonpa of Raymond and Elizabeth RedCorn, and the object of jealousy from his three younger brothers Jon, Alex, and Studebaker, who between them have four masters degrees and two Phd's. Ryan, however, took six and a half years to get an art degree in visual communications from the University of Kansas. To the surprise of many, Ryan has been able to translate his education, his ilonpa entitlement, and his family lineage into something some people think is valuable. He co-founded the Indigenous comedy troupe the 1491s. 

Alex Meraz

Alex Meraz (Purépecha descent) is a Writer and Actor best known for his notable work in hit films and TV shows such as The Twilight Saga franchise, Bright (Netflix), Suicide Squad, and The Walking Dead. Alex will share with you how he went from having no clear vision for his future to how a path started to open up.

Presentation topic:

 A talk about my journey into the entertainment industry, dreams, and putting the puzzle pieces of my life together.
