Taboo Celebrates His Indigenous Heritage with Love on 'Marvel's Storyboards'
The multi-talented storyteller talks about representation and how his Marvel fandom began!
Many artists learn how to tell a story by looking back at the generations that came before them. Jaime "Taboo" Gomez, a musician, rapper, and actor (and more!) who was a founding member of the Black Eyed Peas, treasured the stories and values that were passed down to him from his family, especially his grandmother. On this episode of Marvel's Storyboards, Taboo and Joe Quesada, EVP, Creative Director of Marvel Entertainment, pay a visit to a New York City antique shop and discuss his Native American and Mexican ancestry. Later grabbing a bite to eat at Square Diner, Taboo reveals how his battle with cancer led him to become an advocate for indigenous people.
