This video is part of the Tribal Heritage Project for the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. We are looking for extras to serve as historical re-enactors during the 1830s. All extras must have a strong Native American look. Acting experience is not required.

Girls must be able to fit into one of the costume sizes below. (Do not submit if they would not fit one of the sizes). Girls' sizes 5, 6, 8, 10, 14 and Women' s size 6.

DAY 2: Thursday, April 29.

15-20 Native American actors of all ages.

Call time will be approximately 9 a.m.

The scenes for this day involve a day on the forced march. We will be getting shots of a single file line of Potawatomi on their forced removal, all ages. I 'd like to invite 2 girls and 2 boys from the previous day's shoot to participate today also. The people in these scenes will have marched for miles, very exhausted, sick, etc. They won't be dolled up.

The scene we're depicting is set in 1838, and the previous day's shoot is set in the 1850s.
