The 1491s are a self-described “gaggle of Indians chock full of cynicism and splashed with a good dose of indigenous satire.”

Admired by fans for poking fun at stereotypes and offering unexpected insights into contemporary Native American life, the sketch comedy group has received national recognition for their mix of irreverent, ironic and highly infectious humor. Featured on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the 1491s don’t shy away from uncomfortable subjects. Using performance art and social media, they have built a large following challenging perceptions and taking aim at the appropriation of Indigenous cultures. This performance is recommended for teens and up.

    I’ve been looking for an all ages show to take my 16 yr old who loves comedy. He’s currently taking Native American History in high school so this show would be a win win for him.
