Julius Drum Jr. aka Josh Drum. Richard Yellow Hawk on Thunderheart.

To begin with I am from the Omaha and Ho-Chunk tribes of Nebraska. I started my acting career such as it is back the eighties, as an extra just like every other well known Native actor today. We all had to start somewhere, although I don't consider myself well known I was fortunate enough to get the role of Richard Yellowhawk in the Movie Thunderheart which I received an Award from The First Americans in the Arts for outstanding new Performer that has really been the highlight of my career although I've done some theatre and worked on a movie called Dark Blood an illfated piece of work that was never released because of the untimely death of River Phoenix.

Tod Thawley  

I've found absolutely no bio info on Tod, which is too bad.

Disclaimer: For some of these actors there are no photos available on the web. In an effort to get the attention of people associated with these actors, I'm displaying close up captures of these actors (depending on availability). I don't like using captures, and as soon as I get legal photos to display of these actors the captures are gone. In other words, give me an excuse to take these captures down. I've seen that a presence on the web has a big effect in getting exposure and more fans for an actor, so this is important.
