Rez Comedy TourKewadin Casinos presents The Rez Comedy Tour featuring Tonia Jo Hall and Rob Fairbanks.

Auntie is hitching a ride to the Sault and hitting the 'sino for a night of Rez comedy during Powwow Weekend!

Rescheduled from 2020 because we know you Uncles have been asking for Auntie to visit, The Rez Comedy Tour with Tonia Jo Hall, "Auntie Beachress," and Rob Fairbanks, "The Rez Reporter," is getting rezzy on the DreamMakers stage at Kewadin Casino Sault Ste. Marie on June 30!

Tonia Jo Hall, a Lakota, Dakota and Hidatsa, began making YouTube videos in 2010 and continues to make new content that relates to Native American people. In 2011, she made the decision to pursue stand-up comedy and soon after her crazy, opinionated, foul-mouthed Auntie Beachress made hefirst appearance and we've been laughing ever since.

Rob Fairbanks, a comedian from the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, is best known as The Rez Reporter, a character from the hilarious Rez Report videos, which went viral on social media. This has also allowed him to follow his longtime dream of being a stand-up comedian.

Tickets are on sale beginning Friday, March 31, at 10 a.m. for only $10 at tickets.kewadin.com or at the Box Office.

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) provides eligible low-income households a subsidy of up to $30 per month on internet service plans offered by participating internet service providers and up to $75 per month for eligible households on Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if the household contributes more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.

Households with income at or below 200% of the poverty level are eligible for the subsidy—about 30 million households, or one in four of all households in the US. However, households are also automatically eligible for the ACP—without the need to prove their income—if at least one member of the household is receiving benefits from certain government assistance programs, including FDPIR.

The Biden-Harris Administration has secured commitments from many of the nation’s top internet service providers to offer high-speed internet plans to ACP-eligible households for $30 or less, with no other fees and no data caps. ACP-eligible households that choose to pair the ACP subsidy with one of these plans will be able to obtain high-speed internet with no out-of-pocket costs—meaning millions of low-income households will be able to obtain high-speed internet at no cost.
