See him play Embry Call, a member of the wolf pack in ‘New Moon’

Gordon, 19, Hualapai, agreed to attend the graduation as a special guest. It was his first major public appearance since filming with the rest of what Gordon refers to as the “wolf pack” in Vancouver, British Columbia, earlier this year.
“An acting coach worked with me for about an hour before the audition,” Gordon said. Ironically, “Twilight” author Stephanie Meyer is a member of Gordon’s church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They attend the same ward; Meraz is also LDS.
Gordon met all the major actors and shot a scene with Stewart. “I’ve had long hair since the seventh grade, to my shoulders. Our hair has to be short when we become werewolves. I had no idea they were going to cut it. Oh man!”
And the actors are getting spray-painted to "look like" Indians? Right, because Indians are dark and menacing, you know. With their long flowing hair like a wild animal's mane. Rowr!
Yes, a light-skinned Indian would contradict Meyer's theme: superhuman vampires vs. subhuman werewolves. In other words, Indians as savage beast-men. So the movie falsifies the real Indians to look like stereotypical Indians.

Will someone please help me to understand what it is with non-Indians naming themselves after whole groups of our people? Especially mine!
It would never cross my mine to name a child "Scottish" or "Russian". I don't get it.
Ask Dakota Fanning.
