Johnny Depp Joins Comanche Tribe: 'It Seemed Like a Natural Fit'

Per LaDonna Harris, president and founder of Americans for Indian Opportunity (ahem): "'Johnny is reprising the historic role of Tonto, and it seemed like a natural fit to officially welcome him into our Comanche family. [...] I reached out, and Johnny was very receptive to the idea. He seemed proud to receive the invitation, and we were honored that he so enthusiastically agreed. [...] Welcoming Johnny into the family in the traditional way was so fitting,' Harris said. 'He’s a very thoughtful human being, and throughout his life and career, he has exhibited traits that are aligned with the values and worldview that Indigenous peoples share.'"
