: : 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.

: 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).
I absolutely agree with you.Eric is at ease in any role and so
different in every new apparition.
I have a question about Pontiac Moon: it is the first time I discover that Indian men could be sent to Viet-Nam war.How many were sent? Were they taken from their reservation and then sent back to it if they had the chance of not to be dead?(excuse the bad English) . Is it a page of History that we are missing in France? What about that, please,if somebody can explain to me?
