July 24, 2016 (Los Angeles) -- Producer/writer Thomas R. Bond II is in pre-production of an epic film titled The Red Man’s View, a remake of a Native American film originally done 100 years ago. Unlike, many mainstream Hollywood films that are not historically accurate or where Native Americans are used as only supporting and background actors.  Bond and The Red Man's View team have created a project unlike any Native American film that has ever been released.

NATIVE AMERICAN ACTOR URGES RETENTION OF TRADITIONS

 

November 6, 2013 (El Cajon) — Actor Saginaw Grant, a Sac and Fox Indian who has played numerous Native American roles in the movies and on television, said at a Student Veteran Organization event at Grossmont College on Monday, Nov. 4. that every combat veteran comes home with hidden wounds caused by the things they saw or did.  However, he said, it’s important that they banish negative thoughts from their minds: “You can’t change those things by thinking about them.”

Grant, who had served in the Marine Corps during the Korean Conflict, said even after separating from the military service, veterans should continue to honor the proud military traditions that have been passed down for generations.  Likewise, Grant, who appeared in the 2013 movie The Lone Ranger as the Comanche Chief Big Bear, said that his Indian people should carefully listen and then honor the lessons that have been transmitted for eons in their oral traditions.
