Nathan Lee Chasing His Horse, actor in dance with wolves and now known as Nathan Chasing Horse, was arrested in Nevada for sexual assault following a raid on his home.
The former actor is said to have become a cult leader and is accused of abusing “young Native girls over a period of two decades”, according to the Associated Press.
Chasing Horse was reportedly taken into custody after SWAT officers raided the home he shares with his five wives following a month-long investigation. He is best known for playing Smiles a Lot in the film directed by Kevin Costner.
Authorities reportedly received a tip in October 2022 regarding Chasing Horse, who is believed to be the leader of a cult called The Circle.
According to the search warrant, Chasing Horse had sexual allegations against him dating back to the early 2000s in states including Montana, South Dakota and Nevada. Authorities have already identified six of the alleged victims, some of whom were as young as 13.
The document also states that Chasing Horse was banned from the Fort Peck, Montana reservation in 2015 following allegations of human trafficking.
