There’s a lot of buzz about the character Tonto this summer. We will go deeper into the Tonto files to understand how this fictional character connected to Native America in the past and what it means in the present. Join us for a pre-recorded Native America Calling, where we will hear from the cast and crew who walked the red carpet in June at the world premiere of “The Lone Ranger.” We will also explore the history of the character and ask some of the questions going around Native America. What do you think about Johnny Depp’s costume in the film? Have you ever heard the full Tonto story? How does Tonto’s legacy connect to today? What kind of mark has this character made on the Native actors and directors?
