Who was the famous Native American Will Rogers?

Will Rogers

A Cherokee-Cowboy, Will Rogers was a popular Native American actor, philanthropist, social commentator, Vaudevillian, comedian, and presidential candidate. He was born William Peen Adair Rogers to a well respected and relatively wealthy family, and was often hailed as Oklahoma's favorite son. He knew how to ride horses so well that ended up in the Guinness Book of World Records. His record was for simultaneously throwing three ropes at a horse-one around the horse's rider, one around the neck, and one around all four legs. He appeared in 71 films, and wrote more than 4,000 columns for nationally-syndicated newspapers. In 1935, he died in a plane crash in Barrow, Alaska. View Answer
