KIMBER ACOSTA

ALL ABOUT ME

Operate relentlessly in kindness...

I’ve spent days and nights creating this site. I believe it’s the ideal platform for introducing myself, my insights, my family and the things I do. Since I’ve always enjoyed a wide variety of life experiences, this site includes a little bit of everything: writings, images, work samples and more. I hope you’ll find my content interesting and engaging; learn something new and, hopefully, look at a few things differently. I’d love to hear from you - don’t hesitate to get in touch!

As a published author for motivational books, producer, director, news anchor, entertainment host, editor, marketing & advertising director, journalist, photographer, solutions authority, and online guru, I have been setting trends while expanding my career titles and gaining accolades for three decades.

I bring a multicultural approach to my unique worldview; my ethnic background is a mixture of Ojibwe from the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians, Cree First Nations, French and German.

Kimberlie is always a pleasure to work with and be around. She has a way about her that makes an interview with her go so well. She interviewed me last year at Indian Summer Festival and she made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Kimberlie for any filming, journalist, writing, editing and speaking engagements. She is a class act!

Gwen Carr, Consultant

You do such a wonderful job on Indian country television . I watch it all the time and I just wanted to let you know what a great job you do and while the stories that you report on sometimes are very painful many of the stories you report on our inspirational and all of it is done so well . I just wanted to take a couple of minutes and let you know that. Good job!

Respect Earned...

Amoose Moore

This is a photo I took of one of my mentors, Amoose Moore who was a military officer in the Special Forces division of the U.S. army and photo journalist for GLIFWC.


In September of 2010 I was taking pictures at Indian Summer Festival and I caught a glimpse of Amoose watching me from afar. After I finished my work I came back by him, he stared off in the distance and began sharing a story...this is what he said:


"For many years I've traveled across Indian Country taking pictures for GLIFWC at many pow-wows...there came a time when I began over hearing the dancers telling other dancers to be on their best behavior because their photographer was here...I'd look around wondering who they were talking about and I was the only one there...I came to realize they were talking about me...I thought to myself but I'm GLIFWC photographer, but to them I was their photographer...that's the respect I earned from them over the year's... I no longer was GLIFWC's photographer in their eyes...I was theirs"


He then turned and looked me right in the eyes and said:


"I've watched you taking pictures of all these musicians over the years and I see the respect you give them and that they give you...you are no longer News From Indian Country's photographer...you are their photographer... You've earned their respect."
