Native actors share movie-making experiences

Brothers Michael Spears and Eddie Spears, members of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, shared their acting experiences with students at Montana State University last Thursday.

Michael was 10 when he landed a role in "Dances with Wolves." Now 26, he has starred in seven TV and film productions.

Younger brother Eddie, 22, is just starting out. He played the starring role of a Navajo boxer in "Black Cloud," an independent movie produced by NYPD Blue actor Rick Schroder.

Michael and Eddie say they feel responsible to be positive role models for young Natives.
