Here's a commercial starring Cherokee actor Rob Vestal. It's the first time I can remember a commercial featuring a modern Native actor in a role that isn't specifically Native.

Comment: Natives have appeared in commercials going back to the battles over Proposition 5 and 1A in California almost 20 years ago. Since then, they've occasionally touted their casinos or their history and culture--usually to build support for their casinos. But this ad has nothing to do with anything Native, which makes it rare if not unique.
