P Native American Actor Dakota Black Guests on ActorsE Chat with Host Ron Brewington

Native American Actor Dakota Black Guests on ActorsE Chat with Host Ron Brewington

Dakota Black is a Native American comedian and actor. Dakota states that his heritage comes from the American Blackfoot Tribe in Montana. However, Dakota was born and raised in Lancaster, California. Dakota is very proud of his heritage and notes that he learned about his heritage later in life. 

Growing up Dakota saw himself just like everyone else but reported that he did experience racism as a child. Dakota had a turbulent childhood as his father left when he was five and did not get along well with his stepfather.

Dakota is best known for his work on Bullet (2014), Low Down (2014), and Justified (2010). Dakota also works and entertains for suicide prevention causes, particularly on the Indian Reservations and at colleges and universities.

Dakota is also considered to be a mentor, role model and motivational speaker for kids on the Native American Reservations in Montana. Dakota discusses his special interest in being a suicide counselor because he recognizes the importance of suicide awareness and prevention within the Native American community. Dakota's passion for suicide awareness stems from three people close to him who were victims of suicide. Dakota adds that this has impacted him to counsel others on suicide prevention and to bring awareness to this because it has been a topic that hits him hard. 

Currently Dakota uses his comedy and comedy routines to bring awareness to suicide and uses his comedy as a way to reach those who are suffering.

Dakota went to college at Santa Monica College. Dakota is now currently working towards his doctorate in counseling to counsel suicide survivors (family of suicide victims). Dakota feels his passion is to bring awareness about suicide to the Native American community as well as to bring awareness to the topic of suicide altogether. Dakota wants to help people on the reservation through counseling.

Trivia: He has been told he is a Sinbad look alike.
