In Canada, a star of "Dances With Wolves" confronts new sexual assault charges

Canada police have issued nine new sexual exploitation and sexual assault warrants for a former actor.

Nathan Lee Chasing His Horse has been incarcerated in the United States since his January arrest on suspicion of sexually assaulting young indigenous females. The new charges include removing a minor under the age of 16 from Canada.

The Dances With Wolves actor is also accused of organizing The Circle, a cult-like organization. In the United States, the once active actor, who is known by the moniker Nathan Chasing Horse, had entered a not guilty plea to the allegations against him.

According to the records filed in the case, Chasing Horse, 46, was known as a medicine man among indigenous communities located all throughout the United States and Canada. It is alleged that he committed the acts of abuse while acting in his capacity as a healer.

The Tsuut'ina Nation Police Service issued a statement in which it indicated that the investigation took place over the course of a number of years and that one of the offenses occurred as far back as 2005. Tsuut'ina Nation Police Service Sergeant Nancy Farmer stated that they "anticipate more victims will come forward" during a press conference held on Wednesday.

According to the statement, "The prosecution of Nathan Chasing Horse in various legal jurisdictions has required significant planning and cooperation between prosecutors." Chasing Horse is now being held in detention in Las Vegas, but he is also being investigated for possible criminal activity in Montana and British Columbia.

Sergeant Farmer indicated that extradition is a possibility; however, it would be up to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada to decide whether or not to pursue it. In the months leading up to Chasing Horse's arrest in the United States in January, local law enforcement conducted a search warrant on the residence he is rumored to share in the Las Vegas area with his five alleged wives.

There are allegations that some of his alleged victims were as young as 13 when they were victimized. It is said that one of his wives was given to him as a "gift" when she was 15 years old, and another of his wives married him after turning 16 years old.

Officials from Canada did not reveal any information about the victims, including whether or whether they were unique from the victims in the United States. Additionally, he is suspected of recording sexual assaults and arranging intercourse with the victims for other men, who allegedly paid him to do so. The alleged perpetrators of the crimes are the ones who stand accused of paying him.

According to a report, his legal representatives in the US case have stated that his accusers wanted to have sex with him. Chasing Horse was allegedly expelled from a reservation in Montana in 2015 as a result of claims that she was involved in the trafficking of human beings.

During his career as an actor, he was most recognized for his part as Smiles a Lot, a teenage member of the Sioux tribe, in the Oscar-winning picture Dances With Wolves, which was directed by Kevin Costner and released in 1990. In an effort to obtain comment, the BBC has reached out to one of Chasing Horse's attorneys.
