Dances With Wolves actor Nathan Chasing Horse urged wives to shoot cops and take “suicide pills.”
Former child actor and suspected cult leader Nathan Chasing Horse allegedly armed his wives with guns and “suicide pills” to use if police ever tried to “break up their family,” according to new records.
Chasing Horse, who was arrested on Tuesday for sex abuse, trained his five wives to use firearms and ordered them to “fire” with cops if they ran the family apart – or take the deadly pills he stockpiled as a backup plan had , according to a 50-page search warrant obtained by The Associated Press.
Chasing Horse – best known for his role in Kevin Costner’s 1990 film Dances With Wolves – is accused of sexually abusing Indigenous girls as young as 14 for about two decades.
SWAT officers searched his north Las Vegas home on Tuesday following an investigation dating back to October 2022. According to an arrest report, police recovered memory cards containing videos of the alleged sexual assault, several firearms, 41 pounds of marijuana and psilocybin mushrooms from the home.
He was taken into police custody and sent to the Clark County Jail, where he is being held without bail while awaiting his first court appearance.
The sexual abuse allegations against the accused cult leader date back to the early 2000s and span several states.
Investigators said Chasing Horse, 46, used his influence and power among U.S. and Canadian tribes – whose members believed he was a “medicine man” and a “holy person” who could communicate with higher beings – to help young people to hunt down indigenous girls and create a cult.
“Nathan Chasing Horse used spiritual traditions and her belief system as a tool to sexually assault young girls on numerous occasions,” the search warrant said.
He is charged with at least two counts of sex trafficking and one count each of sexually assaulting a child under the age of 16, child abuse or neglect, and sexual assault, according to court documents. These charges are pending.
Las Vegas police have identified at least six sexual assault victims who were as young as 14 when they say they were molested by Chasing Horse.
Followers of The Circle sect, which he is believed to lead, reportedly offered to marry their underage daughters, the document said.
A girl was offered to him as a “gift” when she was just 15, police said in the warrant.
He also allowed other men to have sex with the victims for payment and recorded the sexual assaults, investigators said.
At least two women in The Circle cult said Chasing Horse showed them the stash of “little white pills” between 2019 and 2020 and told them to take one to kill themselves if he died or law enforcement intervened.
More than 10 years before his arrest, Chasing Horse was reportedly banned from the Fort Peck Reservation in Poplar, Montana amid allegations of human trafficking, drug trafficking, spiritual abuse and intimidation of tribal leaders.
In 2015, Fort Peck tribal leaders had voted 7-0 to ban him from ever setting foot on the reservation again, Indian Country Today reported.
The accused cult leader was born on the Rosebud Reservation – home of the Sicangu Sioux tribe – in South Dakota.
He played the role of a young member of the Sioux tribe named Smiles a Lot in the Oscar-winning film Dances With Wolves.
