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.

well im from there,but anyway, what the hell is a parade without the people? what were they gonna do put him in a car and let him wave to the imaginary people.? My daughter and son where there, said slightly uneventful standing in the rain. heard mel gibson and kevin costner were there in town to filming a movie out in medicine park.

I feel sorry for Depp, having to visit a ****hole like Lawton, Oklahoma. I hope he checked his belongings before leaving, to make sure none of those hoodrats ripped him off.

Great move on the tribes part or it may have been a crowd they could not have controlled! It was really nice of Johnny Depp to attend!

Johnny Depp is so very awesome. He is a tremendous actor and very cool guy. How many celebs would go to a parade like this and not "leak" the info to the press. Yay for him and the folks at the parade. They all had a great time. That siren is terrible. I wouldn't have wanted that in my ears the whole drive.

It wasn't published in any media it was only out by word of mouth and man how it gets all twisted up lol and no Kevin kostner wasnt there lol the only other celeb there was Gil Biringham aka Billy Black from twillight. That was Mr. Depp's request he wasn't there for himself he was there for the kids and to learn about the Comanches. He is a very humble man so is his team of people.

Johnny Depp is gorgeous. Hard for someone to stand out in terms of looks in Hollywood, but he
is a real knockout.

So doing anything in Black face is a no no that is unexcusable but if some native tribe has no problem with it some dude can dress up like a native???
