This chapter summarizes the analysis of indigenous and nonindigenous representations that collide, converge, and are creatively adjusted and readjusted by generations of sitcom producers. Indigenous producers like the 1491s promote a network of texts whose visual, sonic, and affective representations are programmed to empower Native Peoples. It challenges and motivates reflection on understandings of indigenous identities, supports the activist work of decolonizing views of Native cultures, and inspires current and future generations to create and broadcast their own Native tribal televisions.

Keywords:   sitcom producers, indigenous producers, 1491s, Native Peoples, Native cultures, Native tribal televisions
