- FAKE INDIANS -

that Hollywood a.o. would have us believe in.

Mostly picture pages

William "Kirk" Shatner

"Commanche Blanco"



Yes, all the actors on these pages has masqueraded as Native Americans in the movies.

Some of them made us just laugh, some made us pity them, some acted fair,
and a few even made us wonder if they were real.
Maybe they were really courageous to do it?
However ... let us, and them, be glad that it is an age (almost) passed.

When you have looked at those "fakes"(*) below,
take a look at the REAL THING here : Native American Actors


(*) If you can prove that any of these actors really are of NA heritage,
I will remove them imediately from this page.
