Nathan Lee Chasing His Horse, aka Nathan Chasing Horse and Nathan Chases His Horse (born April 28, 1976) is a Native American actor. Formerly from the Rosebud Lakota Sioux Nation, he has spent most of his adult life in California, and now lives in Las Vegas, NV.[1]

Chasing His Horse played the part of Smiles A Lot (Lakota: Iȟá s’a) in Kevin Costner's movie Dances with Wolves. He appeared in three TNT telefilms with First Nations actor Eric Schweig: The Broken Chain, Into the West and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.
