About Karina Lombard

Karina Lombard (born January 21, 1969) is a French-American actress and singer. Lombard was born in Tahiti. Her mother, Nupuree Lightfoot, is a medicine woman of the Lakota Nation and was an immigrant living in Tahiti. Her father, Henry Lombard, a banker, is a European aristocrat of Russian, Italian and Swiss descent. Lombard is a naturalized U.S. citizen but when she was one year old, her parents separated and her father took Karina and her four siblings, Helen, Inez, Charles and Denise, to live at his estate in Barcelona, Spain. She went on to attend a number of Swiss boarding schools, including in Lausanne, where she has said that 'being a descendant of an American Indian meant being treated like a savage'.
