Celebrating American Indian Heritage Day: Native humor takes center stage at The Myrna Loy

It doesn’t escape Krys Holmes that we’re all walking around on land that was the vast home of Native Americans.

She’s keenly aware of this history, which is one reason as executive director of The Myrna Loy, she’s created an annual event celebrating Montana’s American Indian Heritage Day, which is the fourth Friday in September.

“I’m really trying to establish this as a tradition at The Myrna Loy,” she said.

One highlight of this year’s celebration is a night of Big Medicine Comedy, 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, featuring Kasey “Rezzalicious” Nicholson (A’aninin/Gros Ventre and Pikuni/Blackfeet), a Seattle-based standup comic who’s also a trainer for the Native Wellness Institute and a motivational speaker. He’s joined by Donovan “Beef” Archambault, an actor known for his appearances on “First Nations Comedy Experience” (2018), a television series featuring Native American and World Indigenous comedians.
