AMERICAN INDIAN ACTOR

Soboba's Robert I. Mesa Stars in Leonardo DiCaprio's Movie: The Men Who Built America Frontiersmen

by Ernie C. Salgado, Jr., Soboba tribal elder

DiCaprioROBERT I. MESA (Navajo-Soboba) recently starred in the lead role as TECUMSEH in the recent Leonardo DiCaprio's History Channel production of “The Men who built America — Frontiersmen."

The four-part mini series aired March 7, 14, 21 and 28, 2018 on the History Channel.

Although Robert is an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation, his grandmother's tribe, he has always claimed his Soboba heritage.

Robert is the grandson of Steve “Mesa” Sun or “Cowboy” as many of us old timers from the Soboba Rez know him.

Grandpa “Cowboy” is an enrolled member of the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians. His grandmother, Claudia Mesa and her brother, Ralph Arietta Sr., and sister, Elisabeth Mojado, were also Soboba trbal members.

ROBERT I MESA OFFICIAL BIOGRAPHY & WEBSITE

Robert I. Mesa acting credits include: The Men Who Built America Frontiersmen (2018); From Dusk Till Dawn; The Series (2014); and Jacob (2011).

Robert’s acting career was born out of his Tribal Dancing and his primary profession as a photographer which is still his first love.
