Johnny Depp’s Tonto: Navajo Nation

Posted by on April 13, 2012

Badass Digest, by way of their tipsters on the world wide web, lands this EPIC pic of Johnny Depp, once again in costume as the Native American character Tonto, à la Disney’s The Lone Ranger.

Pictured with the Surgeon General of Navajo Nation, Dr. Gayle Dine’Chacon in Monument Valley today, this candid shot lends a more live-action look to the storied character as portrayed by the legendary actor.

A hot spot for some pretty sterile shots of the production as they happen is the film’s über producer’s twitter page here.

The Lone Ranger production, based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico is slated to continue through August – with additional locations, such as this in Utah and Colorado, scheduled for a May 31, 2013 release!

  • If a person takes the time to really listen the southwest desert is filled with ancient echoes. If a person takes the time to open their eyes the southwest deserts mesas, mountains and canyons have decades, centuries and millions of years of history and stories. It is a place of visions and vision quests. A person can resonates with the earth and almost touch the sky all at the same time. The southwest desert is wondrous and beautiful and holds more secrets than any one man will ever know. Equally impressive is Mesoamerica. The lost pyramids and culture stimulate the imagination. If a person doesn’t get too wrapped up in tech gadgets and the stress of what is today they would discover worlds of wonder and possibilities.

    Now that December 21, 2012 is only a few months away many people have heard of Quetzalcoatl. Quetzalcoatl is the winged serpent God promised the Mayans he would return. According to ancientamerica.org …Lizana, an early Spanish historian of the 17th century wrote of the Maya: “The King or false God Itzamna, was represented by the Indians in the form of a hand and they say that the sick and dead were brought to him and that the God cured them by touching them with his hand and that is why the temple is called Kabul, which means the miraculous hand, the temple where so many miracles were performed was the object of numerous pilgrimages…. …With this in mind it is interesting to note that there are numerous accounts of early Spanish soldiers and priests who destroyed Maya images, which were considered sacrilegious because they portrayed the Mayan God Itzamna with pierced hands, similar to the hands of the crucified Christ, and in some cases holding a sacramental type cup….

    Many people believe that Jesus of Nazareth visited Mesoamerica as well as the southwest desert of the United States. I think that would answer more questions than it would create. I would be willing to put money on it if I had any.

    Fast-forward to today…recently a native of New Mexico contacted me and asked me to share his story. So I am. John V. Kemm believes there is a likeness to the Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus in the mountains of Utah. I feel I should remind people that the Mormons whose home base is in northern Utah also believe Jesus visited the Americas. Another connection is Our Lady of Guadalupe who appeared in 1531. So there are reasons to believe America isn’t as godless as some people in the world would like think.

    John V. Kemm, by his own account; is a direct descendant of an illegitimate child of Charles V of Spain. He is also the self-proclaimed discoverer of the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine in Arizona. On Easter April 8th 2012 , while using Google earth he found an image of The Virgin Mary holding the baby Jesus.

    Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind.” (John 9:39)

    When Mary appeared to the three girls at Lourdes the crowd gathered on the last of her visits hoping to see Mary. No one other than the girls saw her, but they were profoundly affected. Unfortunately for me I do not see the images Mr. Kemm sees. I think that what matters is that he sees, and he believes. The following is a message sent from Mr. Kemm:

    The vision of Pte San Win

    (White Buffalo Calf Woman)

    Will become a reality for all people! John V. Kemm Incident#5040812 John V. Kemm All Rights Reserved. While Searching for the Legendary Madre Del Oro Treasure In Utah, Using Google Earth at 5:00 am mountain time zone, Easter Sunday April 8th 2012 Mr. John V. Kemm, has discovered what he believes to be “a miracle” the apparition of the Virgin Mother of Jesus Christ formed in the natural landscape of a mountain in Utah. A Catholic priest who is on face book, James McGowan Pastor at St. Helen Catholic Church Studied Divinity at Mount Angel Abbey & Seminary Lives in Portales, New Mexico From Rio Rancho, New Mexico Says looking at a face book posting of the apparition says “I can See it”… …This road goes through to the center of the apparition. Chris Hollow Rd Scipio, UT 84656 USA, and that address can be entered in to Google earth. Try it now and explore yourself go to http://www.google.com/earth/index.html… … “I firmly believe this mountain landscape is truly an apparition of the Virgin Mary and within her hands is the greatest treasure of all.” Sincerely John V. Kemm

    I have to admit, I feel a little left out, but I am happy for him and all who benefit from his find.

    Many people also believe that the legendary White Buffalo Woman is The Virgin Mary. This too would answer more questions than it would create. It all seems to make sense to me. I have difficulty carving anything in stone because when I do the universe seems to change and mess me up, so I have to start all over. I may not “get” everything right away but I do have faith.

    Matthew 17:20, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

    So if Jesus did visit the Americas maybe he did leave an impression of his mother and himself for a future generation to view in wonder. The desert is a wondrous place filled with ancient stories and secrets waiting to be discovered, and maybe Mr. Kemm is first in line.
