  • Angelique Midthunder Job

Angelique Midthunder works as a casting director. She began her career in the mid-1990s by answering an ad on a whim for a casting call. She eventually developed an interest in casting after winning a major role in a foreign movie and working as an actress abroad.

Her company operates out of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Los Angeles and has been a member of the Television Academy for more than a decade. Along with colleague casting directors David Rubin and Richard Hicks, Amber got another kind of recognition when she and the 2009 Lifetime film Georgia O’Keeffe were nominated for an Emmy. She has dedicated the last 20 years of her work to ensuring that Indigenous populations are fairly and correctly portrayed.

Speaking about how she pursued a career working as a casting director, Angelique revealed, “That was a happy accident. I was in a gap year after college and had no intention of working in film, I didn’t know what I was going to do, but I read a job description in the newspaper [looking for] a horse-riding female in her 20s who could bareback. I assumed it was a job at a stable or a racetrack, and I knew if it had to do with horses, I was going to pursue the job opportunity.”

She added, “I got the part, and it introduced me to the world of filmmaking. I quickly learned acting was not for me. I found myself bonding with the casting directors more than with acting. One offered me a job as an assistant, and so I never pursued an acting career.”

Angelique works out of  LA with Indigenous casting which is her primary job and also does lots of work in New Mexico doing location casting.

Some of her notable works are Reservation Dogs, Alt, The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre, A Deadly Price for Her Pretty Face, The Unsettling, Cliffs of Freedom, Navy SEALs: America’s Secret Warriors, Gunslingers, Banshee Chapter, and several notable others.

Meet Amber Midthunder Father, David Midthunder

David Midthunder and his daughter Amber Midthunder are both enrolled members of the Fort Peck Sioux tribe, and David spent much of his childhood on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Montana. He also wasn’t allowed to publicly discuss his Lakota traditions, fearing retribution, until 1978, when President Carter signed the American Indian Religious Freedom Act.

“I grew up learning to not talk about Lakota religion to people outside of the tribe,” he told The Post. “It was punishable by imprisonment or being put in a mental institution. For my generation, leaving the [reservation] was a scary thought at times. For my kids’ generation, it’s a lot better.”

By the time Amber was born, David’s career was well-established. “If I say yes to a project, it has to be one like HBO’s ‘Westworld’,” David said. “They really showed such a degree of wanting to treat us with accuracy.”

David Midthunder spent his early years in California (during the academic year) and Montana, which paved the way for his acting career (in the summers).

“None of my non-Native friends understood the world that I came from. And in California, I became a surfer and a skateboarder, so my relatives back home didn’t understand that world either,” he said To New York Post. “Maybe that’s how I became an actor. I’d have to fit into these diverse cultures that had no idea about each other.”

David’s career began to take off while he attended a student at the University of Utah. He represented the local Ute tribe by riding a horse during football games as part of the school’s tradition.

“Some people from a movie saw [and recruited] me,” he said. “It didn’t mean anything to me at the time other than helping pay for my living expenses while I was going to school. But all of a sudden I had an agent … and it started happening.”
