ABOUT BLAKE'S WORK

blake-fellow.jpg

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.

Blake Pocquette, a member of the Cherokee Nation, is a Hollywood stuntman and stunt coordinator. “I am very proud to be Cherokee and to have been raised in a small town with not much money but lots of love. I grew up without a father, but through rodeo and riding bulls, I had father figures that showed me what it was to prove myself as a man. I have a wonderful, supportive family that I cherish and a great career as a stunt performer and now coordinator and am excited about opening doors for Native youth to career paths they never thought they might have. I am so proud to be a part of Native Hope...the future is ours!”
