Character Bio

Dog Star photo
Loved by the Buffalo's sister, Thunder Heart Woman (Tonantzin Carmelo), is married off to a white trapper and his brothers Dog Star (Michael Spears) and Running Fox (Zahn McClarnon) begin families, but Loved by the Buffalo realizes that his destiny lies on a different path.

Dog Star and Running Fox argued over whether or not to adopt white technology. The disagreement comes to a boil and the two agree to part ways, splitting the tribe. Running Fox and Dog Star eventually reconcile and agree to no longer trade for white goods.

In episode 3, Running Fox and Dog Star join several other chiefs at the signing of the Treaty of Fort Laramie (1851). All three agree that the peace is precarious but decide to give the agreement a chance.
