"My father is Nick Ramus. The work he did for Windwalker was some of his most rewarding work. The honesty was what intrigued him the most about the script. We are Blackkfeet and many of the extras and small roles went to actual Crow tribal members. Blackfeet and Crow are historical enemies. During the shooting My father playing the part of the Cheyenne Brother had to use some pretty bad language about the Crow while being surrounded by real Crow braves. My father said it was one of the most erie things he ever had to do. Nick was concerned that the Crow would take offence. To his delight the Crow were thoroughly delighted in his performance and gave him a reverred Eagle fan. To this I want to add this speaks honestly to what the actors were feeling. As an aside James Remar does have Native American ancestry. Someone stated inacurately that he was white in their review. My father has passed but the continued love of people for this film is a tribute to the integrity of all those involved."
