: : Hi Alysha,
: : Unless I am mistaken, he was his friend, not his brother, and I do believe the actor is Native American. I'll have to check again, but I'm quite sure I'm right.

: Lohaheeho was Joseph's friend, not his brother. And yes, Chris is right, the actor is Native. His name is Juan Carlos "J.C." Whiteshirt.
I think Alysha was using the term "brother" loosely, to encompass "close friend"...at least, I was when I brought him up at the beginning of this strand (I said "friend/'brother'"). Maybe I confused the matter...in any event, it's easy to get confused, since they called each other 'brother' so much in the film.
Marcia also set me straight a while back about the gentleman who played his friend...that he was Native American. For some reason, he didn't come off as well in the movie -- seemed awkward and out of place.
You haven't commented on the Indian pronunciation in the film. What did you think?
