*German (mother)

Damian Chapa is an American actor, film producer, and film director. Damian was raised in New York.

Damian’s mother is also said to have some Cherokee Native American ancestry. It is not clear if this Cherokee ancestry has been verified/documented.

Damian has stated:

I think it is funny how ignorant people are when it comes to “Mexican” people or “Mexican American” people. We are a very diverse people, and not all one color or one stereo type. I in fact have several cultures in my blood line. My Dad is Mexican with Italian descent and my Mother is German and American Indian Cherokee. So that makes me Mexican German, Cherokee and Italian. However I am much closer to my Mexican American culture as it was something that was there for me when I was a kid. I am very passionate, intense and very family loving person. I speak some Spanish as a result of my Mexican grandmother. I am very close to my Mexican American culture as well.
