Isn't this guy not actually Indian?
There's a bit of a controversy going on the internet. Found out while looking for a mini series (he was in it).

If he isn't, its really unfortunate. Its one thing to love a people, its an other to steal their identity.

If he actually is, then I don't mean to deny someone's TRUE identity.

Jay Tavare is most definitely of American Indian descent. If you actually believed what you said, you won't be anonymous. I rather suspect you are the "fan" who has been stalking him.

I'm not a stalker, just curious of the info I've read. No biggy.

I'm on anonymous because he and his entourage seem to be very aggressive and paranoid about people talking about this. I just wanted an answer and not be harassed for asking.

thanks for answering.

To the stalker who keeps posting comments about Jay.

Get a life of your own. I am just deleting your comments, so why do you keep wasting your time. Whatever issue you have it doesn't belong here. If you had any actual proof you wouldn't be posting anonymously; you would be using your legal name. But you won't because you are afraid of the legal ramifications.
