West Studi in Dances With Wolves:
Yes, Wes was featured in Dances (listed in credits as "Bad Pawnee") He is shown with a couple of other Pawnee in the scene where they are watching the smoke from the campfire of the disgusting little guy who took Kevin Costner to the deserted fort. He tells the other two he will not be scared of a "line of smoke" in his own land, then proceeds to lead the group down to dispatch the wagoneer in a savage attack. He also shows up in the attack on the village, and is chased by the warriors down to the center of a stream where he is "done in" most unpleasantly! Even in these brief scenes, one is impressed with his strength. I recognized him immediately when I first saw Mohicans.
Geronimo is not a "great" film, IMHO, but an interesting one, and Wes Studi does his usual fine job. He is an actor who will always have a commanding presence on the screen, I think, and one who deserves much more credit than he has gotten. No one could have made Magua more intensely frightening!
