Re: [spoiler], Harrison, or Tonto [spoilers]

I also think it's Tonto. Possibly because, IIRC, all onscreen portrayals of Tonto that aren't by Johnny Depp were actually done BY authentic Native American actors. And that even then, Tonto's dialogue is one big cliché anyway.

The BEST portrayal of a Native American that I'm aware of is Graham Greene in Maverick. He even turns the whole clichéd-Indian joke on his head:

"But here you are, in the ninth
Two men out and three men on
Nowhere to look but inside
Where we all respond to PRESSURE!" - Billy Joel
