Gary Robinson is an award-winning writer and filmmaker of Choctaw and Cherokee Indian descent, with more than 20 years of experience in documentary and educational television production, writing, and media project management. Working mainly with American Indian tribes, organizations and businesses, he has written, produced, directed, filmed and edited programs for such diverse entities as the BIA, the Chumash Tribe, PBS and Turner Broadcasting.

Jesse T. Hummingbird, a member of the Cherokee Nation, was born in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, the youngest of seven children. After studying art at various colleges in Tennessee and elsewhere, he established himself as a successful printer, graphic artist and commercial illustrator before becoming a full-time artist in 1983. Featuring Cherokee and other Native American themes—and influenced by the traditional "flat" technique of Native Oklahoma painters—his drawings, acrylic paintings and prints have won numerous prizes. He has illustrated several children's books as well as posters for preeminent Indian arts and crafts shows. His works are in art collections around the world.
