Adam Beach

Arts (2012)

“In any role that I play, I am always wanting to reflect who we are as a people because we have a lot to share with the world,
to express what our traditions are and how grounded we are.”

Beginning his acting career at the age of fourteen, Adam Beach has since gone on to become an accomplished actor, producer and political activist. He landed his first major role with Walt Disney Productions in 1992, starring in the film “Squanto.” Since then, his talents have earned him numerous roles on television and in major motion pictures, including Clint Eastwood’s “Flag of Our Fathers,” and alongside Nicolas Cage in “Windtalkers.” He has been seen on popular television series including “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Big Love.” Most recently he received the Gemini Award for Best Performance or Host in a Variety Program or Series for his work as co-host of the 18th Annual National Aboriginal Achievement Awards. Between appearances in movies and on television, Mr. Beach is committed to raising the profile of Indigenous Peoples through inspirational speaking engagements and his support of the many events he has hosted or been part of.
