Biography

Though he follows in the growing tradition of rappers turned actors, this strikingly handsome and sleekly muscular performer does not hail from the 'hood. Litefoot recited his rhymes and gave motivational talks as an inspirational rapper performing at Native American reservations and schools before making his acting debut as the co-star of "The Indian in the Cupboard" (1995). This charming children's fantasy told the story of a young boy who learns a series of life lessons after he unexpectedly brings his three-inch tall plastic Indian to life by placing it in a magic cupboard. Conscious of his status as a role model, Litefoot bestowed humanity and dignity upon a potential stereotype while demanding historical accuracy in his portrayal.
