The action film "Prey" just became Hulu's biggest ever premiere.
Why it matters: Its success has boosted the fame of its star, Amber Midthunder, who has now become one of the first Indigenous women to lead a major studio film.
Also driving the news this week: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences publicly apologized on Monday to Native American activist Sacheen Littlefeather for the treatment she received at the Oscars in 1973.
What they're saying: "Visibility is one of the most important ways and … initial steps … when you're talking about reconciliation," Midthunder told the Washington Post today.
The big picture: "The presence of Native American stories and actors in media is slowly improving, even though there’s much work to be done. 'Prey' joins a variety of films and TV shows, like 'Reservation Dogs,' 'Yellowstone,' and more, that explore this culture with nuance, all the while featuring new and booming Native American talent," Hola's Maria Loreto writes.
What to watch: Marvel's upcoming "Echo" will make history for the larger MCU franchise as the series features Native American and Indigenous cast and crew both in front of and behind the camera.
