I read only partway through the thread, so forgive me if this has already been said, but... If Depp sincerely wants to salute Native Americans, maybe he should cast a Native actor as Tonto, instead of playing the role himself.
He's part Native American. But, yeah. Perhaps an actor who is MORE full blooded than he...
"Native American" is a tricky designation, however. There are in all likelihood enrolled members of various tribes at least "white" as Depp.

There's also the question that, if we're going to require only Native Americans to play Native Americans, why not do the same with other cultures. Should, for example, Jewish actors be prohibited from portraying Christians or Muslims? Or vice versa?
