Medicine man, award-winning actor and motivational speaker, Nathan Chasing Horse is from the Rosebud Nation of South Dakota. He is probably best known for his role as “Smiles-A-Lot” in the epic movie “Dances with Wolves.” He has been in several other productions since then including the film “Dreamkeeper” and the TV miniseries “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.” Nathan splits his time residing in several major cities in California and Canada. His ceremonial responsibilities however, take him all over the United States and Canada traveling in what has been affectionately named the “Groovemobile.” Nathan is hard to pin down as he is constantly on the move and is in big demand for his words of wisdom and healing. Mr. Chasing Horse spends a large portion of his time doing outreach. He is confident that it is possible to keep tradition alive for young people even when faced with the pressures of gangs, drugs and alcohol. Apart from his dedication to teaching and motivating Native youth, Nathan is an accomplished martial arts student, experienced in rifle handling and archery, horse riding and training, and modern/traditional singing and dancing. Mr. Chasing Horse cites Sitting Bull, his Grandfather and Father as his personal heroes.
