Julian Black Antelope


Julian Black Antelope is an actor and producer who was adopted and raised by a non-aboriginal couple. He grew up outside of Fort MacLeod near the Kainai (Blood) and Piikani Blackfoot Reserves, but knew little of his native culture. After leaving home at 15, he sought out his First Nation roots. Eventually some Blackfoot elders took him under their wings. He has been quoted as saying, “I’m half-Irish and half some kind of Indian.” He is best known for his role as Darrien Tailfeathers on the series Blackstone. We list his credits as an actor. He was a Producer on the 2019 feature Harpoon.
