Ricardo Caté's immensely popular cartoon “Without Reservations” is published daily in the Santa Fe New Mexican and Taos News, and explores the irony and poignant humor found in the Native American experience of living in dominant culture. Caté is the only Native American cartoonist whose work is carried by a daily mainstream newspaper. Many of his comics are included in his extraordinary book, Without Reservations: The Cartoons of Ricardo Caté.
In addition to being a cartoonist, Caté is also an activist, stand-up comedian, writer, teacher, veteran, former college athlete, tribal official, four-time Dakota Access Pipeline protester at Standing Rock, and filmmaker.
Caté's celebrity fans include Wes Studi, Jackie Chan, Winona LaDuke, Nick Nolte, Denzel Washington, and Dennis Banks, co-founder of the American Indian Movement.
He has three children and lives in Santo Domingo Pueblo, where he participates in feast day dances and traditional cultural events.
