The 1491s are a sketch comedy group based in the wooded ghettos of Minnesota and buffalo grass of Oklahoma. They are a gaggle of Indians chock full of cynicism and splashed with a good dose of indigenous satire. They coined the term All My Relations, and are still waiting on the royalties. They were at Custer's Last Stand. They mooned Chris Columbus when he landed. They invented bubble gum. the 1491s teach young women to be strong. And teach young men how to seduce these strong women.

This group of indigenous misfits originally came together to make funny videos to put on YouTube. Since their first video in 2009, the group's work has gone viral - earning fans around the globe with their satirical and absurd comedy. From sold out performances to appearances on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "TEDx Talks," the group continues to grow.

This year, the group celebrated the debut of FX's critically-acclaimed television series “Reservation Dogs,” co-created by 1491s’ founding member Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi. The much-lauded series has already been picked up for a second season, with each of the members of The 1491s working on the show.
