Gary Busey's friend Indian Bob on the ABC reality show 'Wife Swap'

Who Is Gary Busey's Pal Indian Bob?


Celebrity Wife Swap premiered last night on ABC to very strong ratings; in this episode Hollywood loose cannon Gary Busey and disgraced former evangelical pastor Ted Haggard traded spouses.

Today, the internet is abuzz with discussion of the antics of the two couples. There is also a little bit of head-scratching over a cameo appearance by "Indian Bob."

There is very little information on Indian Bob. From articles at and the Christian Post, this is the best we can do: He is said to be Lakota from the Standing Rock reservation, he met with Gayle Haggard wearing regalia and deemed her a "lost soul," and he is some sort of pal and spiritual adviser to Gary Busey.

If any of our Lakota or Standing Rock Sioux readers know any more about Indian Bob, please do share!

I am from the Cheyenne Sioux Tribe which is connected to Standing Rock, and I say he looks authentic enough anyway, but so does that authentic native american jewelry made in China, that is sold in those trading posts.

I resent being called someone from China. Now here is the story. I'm from Fort Yates,ND. I taught school in Eagle Butte in 1979-1980. My sister was married to Ricky Ducheneaux in the early 80's. So, maybe your from China!!!! My cousin Charlie Murphy is the Tribal Chairman at Standing Rock and I have two Uncles on the Standing Rock Tribal Council. Thank you, Robert L. Primeaux, Ph.D. Enrolled Member: Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
