Social and economic prejudices against Native Americans still remains a de facto element of American society.

Sivan Alyra Rose – TV’s First Ever Native American Lead
Breaking stereotypes, Sivan Alyra Rose hopped on the eerie Chambers‘ bandwagon. Thus, becoming the first-ever native American to headline a TV-series. While this is only the first step towards the start of a revolution, it did not happen without a tough struggle. Rose grew up in a highly marginalized community dwelling on the San Carlos Apache reservation. And she did not expect herself to live long enough to see her dreams become reality. Rose puts the blame the little Native American Energy in Hollywood for the lack of inclusive opportunities. In fact, the actress wasn’t even able to land a role in the Netflix horror show Chambers with her first audition. Mark Ruffalo, Chambers Netflix Renewed Cancelled Season 2
“I didn’t think I was going to be here at this age. I had goals and dreams and aspirations. But they felt like [only] goals, dreams, and aspirations. All I really wanted to do was find some independence and maybe go back to school. I wasn’t really hellbent on the fame and glory of Los Angeles.”
Eventually; however, the tables turned for Sivan Alyra Rose as she found a direction in life with her new show. Rose then realized that she was able to depict a character without compromising on her Native identity, and she was able to be proud of who she was.
