Robert Hicks Jr. is a member of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe of Nixon Nevada. He is a musician, filmmaker, painter, and audio engineer. He has won multiple awards for his films at the AIHEC film festival and is looking to enter multiple film festivals around the world. The stories he likes to tell are based on real life and Native American lore. With his film studio, NOKWSI FILMS, he plans on creating a creative outlet for everyone interested in film.
