In addition to being a cartoonist, Caté is also an activist, stand-up comedian, writer, teacher, veteran, former college athlete, tribal official, four-time Dakota Access Pipeline protester at Standing Rock, and filmmaker.

Caté's celebrity fans include Wes Studi, Jackie Chan, Winona LaDuke, Nick Nolte, Denzel Washington, and Dennis Banks, co-founder of the American Indian Movement.

He has three children and lives in Santo Domingo Pueblo, where he participates in feast day dances and traditional cultural events.
