"I am so glad to see Native Americans making it big. I only wish there were more where the indian is portayed as the proud,spiritual,and strong persons that they are."
It is great to see more Indian actors/actresses making it. Wes Studi is a good example of better days. But I'm not so sure a limited portrayal of Indians as "proud, spiritual, and strong" is very good. The full spectrum of humanity ... the good, the bad, and the ugly would offer many more opportunities. Cooper/Mann did it well ... Magua AND Chingachgook.
