  • Ricardo Caté of Santo Domingo Pueblo is the most prominent Native American cartoonist working today, and the only Native American cartoonist whose work is carried by a daily mainstream newspaper, the Santa Fe New Mexican. Many of his comics are included in his extraordinary book “Without Reservations: The Cartoons of Ricardo Caté.” In addition to being a cartoonist, Caté is also a filmmaker, teacher and standup comedian. He has three children and lives in Santo Domingo Pueblo, where he participates in feast day dances and traditional cultural events.
  • Cartoonist Ricardo Caté describes Indian humor as the result of “us living in a dominant culture, and the funny part is that we so often fall short of fitting in.” His cartoon column, Without Reservations, is a popular daily dose in the Santa Fe New Mexican. Actor Wes Studi says, “Caté’s cartoons serve to remind us there is always a different point of view, or laughing at every day scenes of home life where Indian kids act just like their brethren of different races. Without Reservations is always thought-provoking whether it makes you laugh, smirk, or just enjoy the diversity of thought to be found in Indian Country.”
