Deseret News: Profiles Kiowa Gordon

Utah’s Deseret News interviewed Kiowa Gordon, who will be appearing at a number of events in the Utah area. (Photo credit: Camile Nighthorse, AKA Kiowa’s mom)

“Gordon, a newcomer at the time[of the casting search for Native Americans], got the much-coveted part due in part to a lucky break. He is a member of Meyer’s LDS Church ward in Arizona, and “when she told me they were casting for the movie, I jumped at the opportunity.”

And he said he has enjoyed the chance to play a “strong” Native American character in the film. Gordon is a member of Arizona’s Hualapai tribe, which is probably best known for maintaining and operating the Grand Canyon’s “Skywalk.”

“I love being able to honor my roots and my heritage, especially in movies that are so hugely popular,” he said by telephone from Los Angeles.

Gordon said his mother and manager, Camille Nighthorse, has been responsible for his cultural upbringing.”
