By day, Thomas Dardar works in the oilfield and presides as the chief of the United Houma Nation tribe of American Indians.
But for two weekends a year, Thomas dons a magnificent handmade headdress and becomes Indian Santa. With the help of his family and friends and his pickup truck as his sleigh, he delivers toys to children in oil spill-ravaged communities throughout coastal Louisiana.
INDIAN SANTA follows Chief as he spreads joy along the Gulf coast. For some of these kids, it’s the only toy they’ll receive this Christmas.
