Ernie is proud to be a sober and drug free Native American performer and motivational presenter but more importantly he is a sober and drug free husband, father and Native American man.
Ernie performs and presents acting and comedy with a positive message and the performing arts serves as the vehicle to help pass along these most important of messages. One of his weapons in this war against suicides, depression, alcoholism, addiction and bullying are his own personal testimony of beating the odds himself against these issues.
Humor and laughter along with acting are not only medicine for the soul, they’re also amazing and powerful tools! Tools that can be used to gain the trust, confidence, and the attention of people and Ernie does just that, making him a great addition to your project or event as an actor, comedian, motivational speaker, school and conference presenter, and event entertainer.
“It is great to be a Native American but it’s even greater to be a sober and drug free Native American!”
