    Johnny,thankyou for your love and support for a race that washington has forgotten about.I wish you were president so something would be done about the way we are mistreated and presented in the movies nnd tv.pilamaya ye(thankyou),brother.

      Hi sonia,
      I agree with you, it’s good to hear the love and support of Johnny Depp. I don’t know very well your conditions (you talk about mistreatment), but concerning the presentation of the native americans in the movies, I think there has been efforts made to show indians in another way than they were shown decades ago. I am a french woman, living in France and not necessarily in the best place to apprehend all this, but this is the impression I have. Anyway, I wish you all a wonderful powwow, and if this one is over, many others wonderful gatherings (I attended one years ago, and it was for me a magic moment). Sonia, at the end of your message you say “pilamaya ye”, you are probably the daughter of this wonderful Lakota nation ! I wish you all the best ! take care. chantal (from France)

      Hi Sonia ! I agree with you, it’s good to hear the support of Mr Depp. In your message you talk about “mistreatment”, being french, I don’t know the living conditions of you all,but concerning the movies, I think the image of the native american has changed, the scenarios are different, much more realistic than they were decades ago when the “indian” was presented as bad and violent. I wish you all a wonderful powwow, and if this one is over, many others wonderful gatherings ! Sonia, you end your message with “pilamaya ye”, I guess you are the daughter of the great Lakota nation, I have a deep respect for this nation in particular (I learned the history and some words of the language) ! I wish you all the best ! Chantal (from France):)

  5. Chantal says:

    Oups, sorry… I posted two messages, thinking the first one had failed.

  6. Native Truth says:

    Johnny has always claimed he was CHEROKEE….and now that he got adopted into a non cherokee tribe he been doing interviews like this with candles and speaking in slow motion O.o

  7. Shawnee Bill says:

    So much about the claiming being Cherokee, he showed good respect, didn’t see a problem with the back ground of candles, and he always has talked slow also in he’s movies, by the way it was better then him talking in front of a Walmart’.

  8. Robert Stone Sr."Gray Feather" says:

    It is always good to see anyone come back to the people,And yes The Old Ones are smiling and with their open Arms and Hearts.

  9. Melissa says:

    I’m kinda jealous. I’ve always wanted to go to a pow wow. I found out a year ago that I’m a 9th Cherokee and a 1/4th So age. I would rather live with my people than here. You are a wonderful person Johnny Deep. <3 you forever.

  10. Tammy Turner says:

    I would like to find out about my heritage I am told that I have Native American Indian in me but I was Adopted and dont know much about my real family. I have children and on their fathers side their great grandmother was full blooded Native American. dont know from what tribe though. would like to find out we know she was from the Kansas area and the Iraqous Nation. That is all that we have found out so far but would like to find out more if anyone could help that would be nice.

    Johnny , I am from the Tuscarora Nation it was nice to hear you give so many Nations Respect , I am glad you found your path, it’s a life journey to make your soul who the creator always saw you to be. May the light guide you & Feel the grass with your feet to ground your soul on your travels ! Nya:we- Thank you

  12. MN Ojibwe says:

    I am saddened and disheartened that Native people would hold this man in such high regard. He is the biggest phony. He is an ACTOR after all. He is a poser. Everyone who wants to be Indian says they are Cherokee. Everything he said in this video isn’t for the benefit of Natives. It is only to benefit him. I’m not sure why I can see through him but everything that is wrong about this video. People need to get the stars out of their eyes and step back and see this guy for what he really is.

    Didn’t anyone hear about him wanting to buy Pine Ridge so he could “fix” us?

  13. Aho. Thank you for your respect and kindness. I will keep that within my heart each time I dance, just as I do for my ancestors. Many blessings to you, Mr. Depp. Witsatalogi. – Wehani of the Cherokee Nation

  14. So glad that Johnny was able to attend a pow wow. So he might be tsa la gi. And how many others more need to be recognized and who’s to say he means well well time will tell just like we have been facing for years.
