Birth Name: Amber T. Midthunder

Date of Birth: c. 1997

Ethnicity: Norwegian, Sioux Native American, English, Chinese

Amber Midthunder is an American actress and filmmaker. She is the daughter of Angelique S. (Roehm), a casting director, and David Midthunder (David Paul Midthunder), an actor.

Amber’s father was born in Montana, and is of Norwegian and Sioux Native American, and is a member of the Fort Peck Sioux and Assiniboine Indian Reservation. Her mother was born in Bangkok, Thailand, and appears to be of English and Chinese descent.

Amber’s paternal grandfather was Elmer Elias Midthun (the son of Aslag Nilsen Midthun and Edith M. Stenerson). Aslag was born in Bergen, Norway. Edith was born in Minnesota, to John Stenerson, who was Norwegian, and Abbie.

Amber’s paternal grandmother was Cynthia Rose Hamilton (the daughter of Harvey Hamilton and Angel/Angie Armstrong). Cynthia was born in Montana, and was a Sioux Native American, of the Assiniboine tribe. Harvey was the son of Pipe Hamilton and Chief Woman. Angel was the daughter of Bun Armstrong and Two Woman.

Amber’s maternal grandfather was likely James Thomas “Tom” Roehm (the son of Lester Roehm and Helen). James served in the Vietnam War, in which the U.S. had many soldiers stationed in Thailand around the time of Amber’s mother’s birth. It is not clear if James is Amber’s biological grandfather or not.

Amber’s (likely adoptive) maternal grandmother is Priscilla Donaby.
