Wes Studi: American Indian actor to enter Hall of Great Western Performers
Question of the Day
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Actor Wes Studi is set to become the second American Indian inducted into the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum’s Hall of Great Western Performers in Oklahoma City.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the star of “Dances With Wolves” and “The Last of the Mohicans” will be inducted Saturday with the late film-noir actor Robert Mitchum.
Mr. Studi, a resident Arroyo Hondo, N.M., also is known for his roles as the Apache leader in “Geronimo: An American Legend” and the Navajo detective Joe Leaphorn in the made-for-TV movies based on mysteries by the late New Mexican writer Tony Hillerman.
The only other American Indian in the Hall of Great Western Performers is Jay Silverheels, a Canadian Mohawk First Nations actor known for playing Tonto in the 1950s television series “The Lone Ranger.”
