On the 127th anniversary of the massacre at Wounded Knee, a new book travels back to the turn of the 19th century, when fake news, land grabs and institutionalized racism were growing roots.

Bio

Alexis Camins is an actor, writer, husband and father. As an actor, he's worked in New York and regionally, in theater, film and television. In New York, he's appeared at LaMama Experimental Theater, Cherry Lane Theater and the Ensemble Studio Theater. He's acted in five productions with New York's Obie Award winning National Asian American Theater Company. Recent regional theater credits include the Huntington Theater in Boston and The Folger Shakespeare Theater in Washington D.C. He's also worked at the Alabama Shakespeare Theater, Portland Theater Company, Guthrie Theater and Penumbra Theater Company. Camins has been in a handful of short films and TV shows, and lived his childhood dream by being a voice in a video game.

When he isn't acting, he's complaining about it, most recently in his one-time blog Why I'm Tired of Being an Asian Actor. Camins has also written four plays: “Everything” (Desipina and Company's 7-11 Series), “To the Colored American Soldier” (Studio Tisch), “Family Lies” (Diverse City's Green Room Series) and the upcoming “Drinking with Dad” at Studio Tisch.

He received his MFA from NYU's Graduate Acting Program, and is a member of SAG-AFTRA and of the Actors’ Equity Association. Before NYU, Camins graduated from UCLA as the valedictorian.

Camins is most proud of being husband to yoga instructor Cindy and father to Audrey Day.
