RNCI Indigenous Film Crew Registry

The RNCI Indigenous Film Crew Registry provides qualified Native and Indigenous candidates for behind the camera, below the line positions to help studios and producers who want to have more diverse and inclusive film crews for their productions. A cohesive strategic comprehensive database for the entertainment industry.

We connect underrepresented Native and Indigenous crew members to hiring managers who practice inclusive outreach.

"It’s our great pleasure to be partnering with RNCI. The Native Americans have been long overlooked and Crewvie is here to help the people of Red Nation be seen, found and hired! No more excuses. We are an ALL inclusive world wide productivity tool for the entertainment community which gives user accountability in their hiring practices. We look forward to growing our relationship and making a real impact for this community."

Marcei Brown and Jeanette Volturno, Co-Founders of Crewvie

There are 19 Pueblo tribes in New Mexico. Each pueblo is a sovereign nation.

Today, Pueblo people are located primarily in New Mexico. At one time, the Pueblo homeland reached into what is now Colorado and Arizona, where incredible dwellings and trading centers were established at sites such as Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico and Mesa Verde in southwestern Colorado. Pueblo people have preserved their identity in the face of multiple colonizing nations, and today, as always, value their identity and traditional ways of life. At the same time, Pueblo people live in modern houses, working and living both on and off our reservations.

Pueblo beliefs and actions are still guided by Pueblo Core Values, which include love, respect, compassion, faith, understanding, spirituality, balance, peace, and empathy. Celebrations and ceremonies are continued throughout the year, maintaining the connection to Pueblo communities, ancestors, and to the Earth.
