InterTribal Entertainment (ITE) is a multimedia training and production initiative of Southern California Indian Center, Inc. (SCIC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which, since 1968, has been serving the urban American Indian population of Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties. ITE is funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Labor's Workforce Investment Act Section 166. ITE was founded in 2000 by legendary actor and recording artist Floyd Red Crow Westerman.
ITE's primary objectives are:
- To provide workforce training and employment opportunities for Native Americans pursuing careers in the entertainment industry.
- To develop, produce and market film, television and multimedia projects which contribute to a greater understanding of the American Indian experience.
ITE's efforts are driven by SCIC Planner and ITE Director James Lujan (Taos Pueblo) who brings twenty years of experience in film production and training.
