Blake Pocquette, Cherokee from Tahlequah, Oklahoma, is a Hollywood stunt performer and coordinator; he lives just outside of Los Angeles. While growing up, Blake rode horses, worked with rodeo livestock, and started riding bulls at the age of 15, so specializing in horse stunts runs in his blood. He got his start in the entertainment business performing Wild West Show stunts at Disneyland Paris at the age of 23. Additionally, he performed for Medieval Times where he performed duties of training and fight coordinating. Over the years, Blake has worked with some of the most talented coordinators in the business and doubled for actors Nicholas Brendan in Buffy and Adam Beach in Hostiles and Cowboys and Aliens. Blake’s Native Hope Fellowship will enable him to design a camp for Native American youth where Blake can utilize his stunt skills inspiring young people to take risks while empowering them to pursue the careers of their dreams. He hopes to take this program across Indian Country.
