Biography, Awards, Recognitions and Achievements
For over 30 years, award-winning musician, actor, director and businessman, Gary “Litefoot” Davis (Cherokee Nation) has served as a voice of empowerment, force of inspiration and model of indigenous success. With decades of direct engagement with tribes, multiple businesses and accolades covering the music, fashion, marketing, film, television, and media industries with companies such as Litefoot Enterprises, Davis Strategy Group, Native Style Clothing, Native Business and IndigiStudios, Litefoot has held tightly to his indigenous values while trailblazing paths and building an eclectic resume of formidable accomplishments.
At an early age, Gary took after his grandfather and father before him and began his own business. His entrepreneurial spirit and love for music, specifically hip hop, led him to starting his first business, Red Vinyl Records. Soon afterwards he began releasing his own brand of indigenous inspired rap he titled “Tribalistik Funk”, and started touring the United States, and performing internationally. His accomplishments as an independent record label owner and rap artist went on to garner him six Native American Music Awards including, Artist of the Year, thousands of concert performances across North America and he helped develop and launch the careers of other indigenous artists who have since gone on to achieve successful careers.
After returning from a performance in Rome, Italy, his relentless hip-hop touring schedule soon caught the attention of Paramount Pictures which landed him his first starring role in the feature film, “The Indian In The Cupboard” in 1994. He has since starred in several additional feature films and popular television shows including, “Mortal Kombat, Annihilation (New Line Cinema), Kull, The Conqueror (Universal) House of Cards (Netflix) and a soon to be released animated indigenous children’s cartoon (Netflix) in 2022.
Mr. Davis recently began IndigiStudios, an indigenous film and production company, focused on a slate of theatrical, episodic, and documentary projects all centered around the company’s mission of reclaiming the indigenous narrative in film and television. The first project released by IndigiStudios is an award-wining documentary short film, and Mr. Davis’s directorial debut, Strong Hearts: An Indigenous Love Letter To My Sons. The success of ‘Strong Hearts’ will be followed by several other projects Mr. Davis intends to either write, direct or produce for IndigiStudios.
In addition to his pursuits in the arts, in 2007, his ascension in national tribal economic development began when he became Vice-President of U.S. Native Affairs for the Triple Five Group (owners of the Mall of America) and co-chair of the National Indian Gaming Association’s, American Indian Business Network. Mr. Davis has served as the chief executive officer at prominent national tribal economic development organizations including the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development and the Native American Financial Services Association where he helmed the largest annual gathering of tribal and indigenous entrepreneurs, operated multiple federal programs, and led national and international initiatives related to business and entrepreneurship across Indian Country.
He has twice testified before the U.S. Senate and is astute at policy matters related to Indian Country. He is a relentless advocate for tribal sovereignty and has considerable experience building bridges on Capitol Hill. His effectiveness in working with federal agencies to advance business in Indian Country has been substantiated by his twice being appointed an ambassador for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Minorities in Energy (2015) and Equity in Energy (2020) initiatives as well as his appointment to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Council on Underserved Communities (2016).
He is an accomplished international public speaker having delivered the featured keynote speech at the World Indigenous Business Forum in Guatemala City, Guatemala and remarks at Hannover Messe, the world’s largest trade fair for industrial technology, in Hannover, Germany.
Mr. Davis has motivated and educated audiences nationwide by providing keynotes and lectures at a variety of colleges and universities including Virginia Tech, University of Wyoming, University of Wisconsin, University of North Carolina and University of Oregon. He has been a featured speaker for corporations, tribes and organizations including Amazon, PNC Bank, Seminole Tribe of Florida, Sodexo, the FDIC, the United States Navy, National Indian Gaming Association and the United States Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency.
In 2010, Gary authored and self-publishing his first book, “The Medicine of Prayer” which provides readers with bold new thinking, inspiring stories, and practical tools to help them move forward in faith and realize their dreams. Mr. Davis will soon release his second self-published book entitled, “Obsidian Tongue”.
He is a recipient of the prestigious Sevenstar Award from the Cherokee Nation Historical Society and received the Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency National Director Special Recognition Award in 2015. Mr. Davis was also recognized by Scholastic Books in their publication “Native American Heroes” in 2019.
Gary “Litefoot” Davis serves as a successful example of the possibilities that exist for anyone who knows their worth, refuses to be defined by the limitations of others and relentlessly pursues their goals until they have achieved their highest aspirations.
The Davis family are proud members of the Cherokee Nation and Gary loved spending time with his grandfather, Roy Davis. Roy was an amazing self-made man whom had pulled himself up by his bootstraps and overcome the odds and found success in life as a proud Cherokee man.
Roy moved his family to California in the early 1940’s and ultimately ended up becoming an entrepreneur excising the mechanic and construction trades he had taught himself growing up in Oklahoma. Not long after Gary “Litefoot” Davis was born, his father moved the family back to Tulsa, Oklahoma and soon after, Gary’s grandparents moved back to Oklahoma as well.
As a child, Gary loved spending enormous amounts of time with his father and grandparents who all worked together and ran the family’s businesses.
His mother also helped out with their businesses, but never at the expense of providing a loving home for the family. At home she taught Gary many of the same core values that his father also reinforced in the way he operated the family businesses; “nothing takes the place of hard work”. Gary’s mother instilled a strong spiritual foundation in her son and stressed to him throughout his childhood the importance of prayer and faith.
As a young boy, you could find Gary helping out the best he could with the family business. He cleaned up tools in his father’s auto mechanic shop, helped sweep the office floors and wash the cars at his dad’s car lot and even helped with construction clean up and “demo” work for his dad’s construction company. No matter what odd jobs he was doing for the family business, the most important things he was doing during those formative years was, “listening and observing”. He intently watched his father negotiate business deals and listened to the sales skills his father used to be able to turn a “no” into a “yes”. He was acquiring the tools and skills that he would use himself many years later on his road to becoming a successful businessman and leader.
In his early teens, Gary’s father had tried to help a family member and while out of town on the family’s first ever extended vacation, that family member, in a matter of days, made business decisions that would bring the family’s business crumbling down. This changed everything for Gary and his family. They lost everything. Gary had to drop out of high school and got a job to help the family.
It was a character building time for him and not without a constant barrage of difficulties. A year later, Gary got back into school but the family’s hardships led to his mother and father divorcing and in a short window of time he lost both of his grandparents. He had learned the value of hard work and perseverance and was bound and determined to not let his family down and to make something of his life.
he next summer, Gary had talked with a friend and learned how much money he was making mowing lawns after school, on the weekends and over the summer. Gary decided to start his own lawn mowing business and would drive all over Tulsa, knocking on doors of houses who had grass that had grown tall and needed to be cut.
He was soon able to buy all of his own equipment, set his own hours and soon began to realize that the money he made from mowing yards and owning his own business was much greater than any job that required him to punch a clock and receive a minimum hourly wage.
The entrepreneurial spirit had taken hold in Gary.
RED VINYL RECORDS
Gary, who had developed a passion for writing in high school and a love for dancing and hip hop music… found those worlds come together while visiting his mom, who had since moved back to California.
His younger sister who was living with his mom in California. She was an aspiring singer and busy recording a demo with some local producers that she had met. She had asked Gary if he’d like to come along and write a rap for one of her songs? He agreed and after writing the rap, the producers asked him if he would like to lay down a “scratch” vocal track of the rap, so, “…whomever would actually end up performing the rap would have an idea as to how it should be delivered…”.
Gary got in the vocal booth and that 16 bar verse would become his first performance as a rap artist. He immediately fell in love with recording and making music.
Upon returning to Oklahoma he started writing his own songs and putting together dance routines for each one knowing that one day he would perform these songs and he wanted to be ready.
He soon found a studio to record in but he was in search of a “rap name”. He wanted a name that reflected his Native American heritage, but it also had to mean something more personal.
While at a pow wow one weekend with friends, he heard the announcer call a dancer up to receive his winning prize money. The last name of the dancer was “Lightfoot”. The name immediately resonated with Gary; it was Native and had meaning to Gary as it reflected his passion for dancing and the choreographed routines he was making for all of his songs. He didn’t want to offend the “Lightfoot” family by using their name – so he changed the spelling to “Litefoot”.
Litefoot was now recording his own music and performing at talent shows and clubs in the area as the first Native American rap artist.
Soon he was performing for tribes across Oklahoma and not long after that he was traveling in Native communities from Alaska to Maine and everywhere in between.
Litefoot would perform his music and always deliver a message at every show encouraging the people in the communities he was visiting.
His musical pursuits turned into his first business, Red Vinyl Records. Gary started the company in 1992 with the core value, that if you “do good”, you will “get good”.
Litefoot desired to encourage Native people, increase awareness in mainstream society and ultimately to make a difference for future generations of Native American people through his music.
FROM MUSIC TO MOVIES
Litefoot soon found himself performing constantly across the United States and in Canada. His fan base was growing from a relentless touring schedule that constantly had him on the road.
In January of 1994, He was asked to travel to Rome, Italy with a group of Native musicians to perform at a festival. The trip was being facilitated by the American Indian College Fund, which was at the time based in NYC, and Litefoot was asked to represent the contemporary aspect of Native music. The trip was the first time Litefoot performed internationally and he was a hit. He performed at the Palazzo de Esposizioni in the heart of Rome and was interviewed by Radio Rai and even made the city newspaper.
As soon as he returned back to the United States he returned to a crazed touring schedule. While on tour in Oregon performing for the Burns Paiute Tribe, Litefoot received a phone call that Paramount Pictures had called and requested that he travel to New York City to read for a forthcoming Paramount Pictures film entitled, The Indian in the Cupboard.
The casting for the film was being done in New York City and they had reached out to the American Indian College Fund inquiring as to Native American actors who might be candidates to audition for the film. The college fund mentioned Litefoot and even though he was not an actor at the time, that he might be someone whom should audition for the role.
After receiving the call from Paramount Pictures, Litefoot traveled to New York City and auditioned. He was asked to stay and meet the Director and audition for him, which he did. Having never acted before, Litefoot won the role of “Little Bear” and The Indian In the Cupboard became his first starring role in a major motion picture. Litefoot had made it to Hollywood.
MORE MOVIES...MUSIC AND MARRIAGE.
Litefoot filmed the Indian In The Cupboard from late 1994 through early 1995. The film was released in July of 1995 and Litefoot received raves for his portrayal of Little Bear.
After filming had wrapped Litefoot returned to touring and delivering a message of empowerment on reservations across North America. He released the album, “Good Day To Die” which has become a classic amongst fans and he also did more films, including Mortal Kombat, Annihilation, The Song of Hiawatha, Kull, The Conqueror and Adaptation to name a few.
He landed roles in such television shows as, Family Law, Any Day Now, and CSI Miami.
In late 1997, Litefoot met his future wife, Carmen, and the two were married in 1998. The couple welcomed their first child, Quannah, in 1999.
MORE MUSIC, FASHION AND AN UNPRCEDENTED MOTIVATIONAL TOUR
Litefoot continued to release music independently on Red Vinyl Records at the rate of almost one album per year between 1998 and 2004.
He had also become known as a powerful speaker. His message of self empowerment through “living your purpose” resonated with audiences. He was able to reach, engage, motivate and inspire people of all ages in a very effective way and it made him a highly sought after public speaker.
Litefoot continued to tour across the country with his wife and young son, performing and speaking to packed crowds on reservations everywhere.
Litefoot and his wife Carmen, also started the Native Style clothing and apparel brand during this time. The two traveled and sold Native Style everywhere that Litefoot performed. The brand quickly became a success and is available online at: www.nativestyleclothing.com
In 2005, Litefoot and his wife planned, produced and facilitated an unprecedented effort of nationwide outreach to tribal nations across the United States called, the Reach the Rez Tour.
The purpose of the Reach the Rez effort was to proactively travel to tribal communities across the United States and deliver a message of hope and prayer to Native people.
Litefoot, his wife and son, and a small crew held 211 motivational speeches and inspirational performances that traveled them 54,000 miles across the United States between 2005 and 2006. That happens to be approximately the same distance as traveling twice around the earth.
The effort included a weekly satellite radio show called “Reach The Rez Radio” that was broadcast nationwide which Litefoot produced and hosted.
The Davis family continued the exhaustive effort for four additional years, traveling nationwide to tribal nations and communities delivering a messages of hope and empowerment.

INDIGI STUDIOS and WRITING, PRODUCING & DIRECTING FILMS
In 2021, having been a notable figure in Indian Country for nearly 30 years, Mr. Davis along with his wife Carmen, launched their newest entrepreneurial and creative endeavor – IndigiStudios.
Indigenous people are, and have always been, storytellers.
IndigiStudios is a 100% owned and operated indigenous film and production company, focused on a slate of theatrical, episodic, and documentary projects, all centered around the company’s mission of reclaiming the indigenous narrative in film and television. Beyond dramas, the company will strive to tell fun and fantastical stories, aspiring to create impactful films in every genre – from action to rom-com to documentaries and even sci-fi.
We believe that by sharing and expressing indigeneity cinematically, we will subsequently touch the spirit of people universally.” – Gary “Litefoot” Davis
IndigiStudios is focused on building bridges for indigenous people through the art of storytelling and in the process reclaiming the inaccurate spoken and written account of connected events related to indigenous history in the United States.
IndigiStudios aspires to utilize its proficiencies in filmmaking to make an impact globally.
Through its films IndigiStudios wishes to coalesce an ever-growing global community in solidarity and partnership with Indian Country to advance indigenous truths and eliminate the falsehoods which have plagued indigenous people since the onset of colonization.
IndigiStudios believes its work will serve to embolden the spirit and strengthen the resiliency of future generations of native people, so that they are empowered to be unwavering and fierce in their endeavors and live unashamed as indigenous people who each have a purpose on this earth.”
It is a good day to be indigenous!
“The oral traditions of our indigenous people will live on through each of our projects. By telling an array of stories from an indigenous perspective we are advancing our truths, preserving our values, building a global community and reclaiming the indigenous narrative – one film at a time.” – Gary “Litefoot” Davis
Mr. Davis recently wrote and directed the first project released by IndigiStudios, the award-winning documentary short film, Strong Hearts: An Indigenous Love Letter To My Sons.
’Strong Hearts’, is filled with a father’s wisdom and indigenous world view, poetically expressed as a letter to his three sons. The title of the film is inspired by the legendary Oglala Lakota Chief, Crazy Horse. On June 25, 1876, General George Armstrong Custer’s U.S. 7th Calvary attacked Crazy Horse and his people in what would become known as the battle of the Little Big Horn. That day Crazy Horse implored his warriors to fight for their way of life and exhorted them to action by saying, “Strong hearts to the front, weak hearts and cowards to the rear. Today is a good day to fight for your people. Today is a good day to die for your people.” Crazy Horse’s passionate rallying call to his warriors strikes at the heart of this intimate short documentary film. Through raw vulnerable narration delivered over evocative music, a message of strength, beauty and power emanates with love from an indigenous father to his three sons. The young men are reminded of the struggle of their indigenous ancestors, encouraged to fight for their purpose in life, hold close to their cultural teachings and to not let the world define them. Filmed on location at various battlefields between Crazy Horse and the U.S. military, and at the actual location where he was murdered, historical happenings become the perfect classroom for teaching lessons of strength, gratitude, humility and love. The films messages emanate with the love of an indigenous father speaking truth to power upon his three sons.
‘Strong Hearts’ is the first of several projects Mr. Davis will be involved in developing as either a writer, director and/or producer.
Today, Gary continues to motivate audiences nationwide as a public speaker. Over the years, he has provided hundreds of keynotes and business trainings for corporations and tribes. He has also lectured at a variety of colleges and universities including Virginia Tech, University of Wyoming, University of Wisconsin, University of North Carolina and University of Oregon. He has been a recent featured speaker for corporations and organizations including Amazon, PNC Bank, Sodexo, the FDIC, the United States Navy and the United States Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency.
For over three decades, Mr. Davis has meshed his success as an entrepreneur, with his passion to better the future of Indian Country in the hopes that his life and accomplishments will serve as a source of inspiration for others.
