Manny Lieras, Producer
As an emerging leader in the California Native American community, Manny Lieras has many talents and wears many hats. When he’s not working as the program coordinator at the American Indian Child Resource Center in Oakland, you might find him coaching youth football for the Sports and Nutrition Program, volunteering his time to teach traditional drumming at the Intertribal Friendship House in Oakland, or singing at one of the many pow-wows across the country, where he has won several large-scale competitions, both individually and as a member of All Nation Singers.
