Michael Horse (born December 21, 1949) is an American actor, jeweler, and ledger painter[1] known for his portrayals of Native Americans in film and television.

Early life

Horse was born Michael James Heinrich in Los Angeles, on December 21, 1949. His mother's last name was given as Posten.[2] His mother's full name was Nancie Belle Posten. She was born in Arizona in 1931, her father Wilber Posten was from West Virginia and her mother Violet Howell was from Idaho. She was Swedish.[3] Horse's adopted father, George Heinrich, was born in Florida to parents from Austria.[4] Nancie died in California in 2004.[5]


Horse's film debut came in the role of Tonto in the 1981 movie, The Legend of the Lone Ranger, which was a commercial failure. Before taking the role, Horse had been concerned that the character might be perceived as a stereotype.[6] However, Horse said that after the film was released, Dennis Banks and Russell Means of the American Indian Movement told him, "You did a wonderful job. You didn’t embarrass us."[6] Horse said that the film enabled him to launch a career as a character actor without being stuck in the role of Tonto.[6]

After appearing in David Lynch's short film The Cowboy and the Frenchman (1988), Horse portrayed Deputy Hawk, a Native American policeman, in Lynch's TV series Twin Peaks (1990–91).[7] He also acted in Passenger 57 (1992),[8] House of Cards (1993), the 1990s version of the television series The Untouchables (1993),[9] and North of 60 (1995–97). He also appeared in the Thanks episode "Thanksgiving" in 1999, portraying Squanto. He appeared as Deputy Owen Blackwood in four episodes of the first season of Roswell (1999). Horse also appeared as Sheriff Tskany in The X-Files episode "Shapes" in 1994.

Horse portrayed American Indian Movement (AIM) activist Dennis Banks in the 1994 TNT movie Lakota Woman: Siege at Wounded Knee. Eight years later, he lent his voice to "Little Creek's friend" in Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. He portrayed Mike Proudfoot on Sons of Tucson. In 1995 he portrayed Dirty Bob in the Western movie Riders in the Storm.[citation needed] He played the character Jindoga in Hawkeye. In 2017, Horse reprised his role as Deputy Hawk in the third season of TV series Twin Peaks.

He also portrayed Twamie Ullulaq in the seventh season of The Blacklist in 2020.

Personal life

Horse is of Yaqui Native American descent and born in Southern California.[10] On November 23, 1993, Horse married Sandra Dee Dombrowski in Nevada.[11]
