Chief Yowlachie (born Daniel Simmons; August 15, 1891 – March 7, 1966) was a Native American actor from the Yakima tribe in the U.S. state of Washington, known for playing supporting roles and bit parts in numerous films.
He was born in Yakima, Washington, and died in Los Angeles, California.
Some of his television appearances include "War Horse", an episode of The Lone Ranger and "Rope of Lies", an episode of The Virginian. He appeared twice on the early series, The Range Rider, starring Jock Mahoney and Dick Jones.
In 1962, Chief Yowlachie played "The Great Chief" in the episode "The Black Robe" of NBC's western series, The Tall Man.
