Johnny Depp Donates $25,000 in Scholarship Funds to Navajo Nation

Actor Johnny Depp, who is portraying the American Indian character Tonto in the upcoming movie version of The Lone Ranger, has given the Navajo Nation $25,000 to be used for scholarships for Navajo Nation students, according to Native News Network. Many scenes in the film were shot in Monument Valley, a picturesque area within the Nation located on the Arizona-Utah border. In this movie's version of the Lone Ranger story, Tonto is Comanche, although in the original 1930s radio series he was identified as Potawatomi. Depp was adopted into the Comanche Nation in May by LaDonna Harris of Americans for Indian Opportunity, and later served as Grand Marshal of the Comanche Nation Fair parade. The Lone Ranger is scheduled for a June 3, 2013 release.
