: As to Eric, the man is another great talent in my mind. He of course plays the Native American with style and honesty and sensitivity...but there is a bigger talent under there and I hope those who direct and cast continue to recognize it and develop it. He strikes me as a very intelligent and sensitive man, with many sides to his personality, but is always true to what he is at any given moment. I wanna see MORE of this man!! Period film or not. Though, I think, he has done as much or more for the cause of the Native American as Russell Means has, but in his own way. A quieter way. One that may have a better chance of reaching Americans and changing paradigms than a strident tone would.

woke up from my nap, washed dishes, ironed, delivered son to his
volleyball match and here I am, full of renewed energy...:-)))
I fully agree with you on DDL and Eric.
Eric was absolutely wonderful in Broken Chain, delicate and convincing as Viet-vet in Pontiac Moon; mean, scaring and a bit
self-ironic in Tom & Huck, "ferocious" as needed in Dead Man's Walk, sweet and tender in Follow the River and Red River.
I really hope he will soon have new good opportunities to show
how much he can give (and I believe is a lot).
In the meantime we can enjoy his masks.
Hey Rich, what about asking him for some music (the one he was playing with his rock band)?
Gotta do some job now (I'm supposed to DO a job every now and then).
