Johnny Depp

Surprise Appearance

at Native American Parade

Johnny Depp
is an honorary member of the Comanche Indian tribe, so it should come as no surprise he showed up at Comanche Nation Fair today in Oklahoma ... except for the fact the tribe didn't publicize his appearance at all.

The 21st Annual Comanche Nation Fair is being held this weekend in Lawton, OK ... and none of the locals knew Depp would be there today. We're told the tribe wanted to keep Depp's appearance a secret so the parade (where he served as Grand Marshall) was not bombarded with people there just to see Johnny.  

As you can see from the video, they succeeded admirably.

Depp was named an honorary member of the tribe back in May, partly due to the fact he is playing Tonto in the upcoming "Lone Ranger" movie.

"Honorary Member" of their tribe because of a movie where he's playing "Tonto"? Please tell me this is a joke, or just bad reporting again. How patronizing can you get? I'm only part Iriquois, and that's a bit insulting to me, especially since we have no idea how is depiction of Tonto will be received. "His" Tonto looks like a pretty humiliating interpretation to me, as part native american.

But, I do and have always enjoyed Depp. Haha, I guess he gets a pass...

So this has nothing to do with any Native American causes but is only about Deep PROMOTING A MOVIE.
