JAY SILVERHEELS (1919-1980, born on the Six Nations Reservation, Brantford, Ontario, Canada) was the son of a Mohawk Indian Chief and made a name for himself as a star lacrosse player and amateur boxer before entering films in the mid-1940s. He appeared in many films, often in un-credited roles, before assuming his most famous role: as the Lone Ranger's faithful Indian companion Tonto in the TV series The Lone Ranger (1949-1957). Silverheels was a frequent guest star on TV and had small roles in several westerns after The Lone Ranger.
