Cree actor defies expectations

Dakota House’s Large LifeWe get impressions of people. More often than not, we’re close to the mark—the botoxed, spray-tanned suburban matron; the shlubby sports fan crushing beer cans on his forehead for a few dopey guffaws with his few dopey friends; the celebrity who chastises the common folk about global warming while jetting to his 12,0 00 square foot ski lodge in Telluride.

Yep, you get impressions of people. But once in a while you meet a person who defies stereotyping. Sure, you might try to pigeonhole them, but dammit, they are and they aren’t what you’d expect. And how incredibly refreshing that is.
