Dehl Berti (January 17, 1921 - November 26, 1991) was a Chiricahua Apache actor who often played Native Americans. One of his more recognized roles was as John Taylor on the 1988-1991 CBS western television series, Paradise, starring Lee Horsley as the reformed gunfighter Ethan Allen Cord.
A native of Pueblo, Colorado of Apache descent, he married Turkish actress Zerrin Arbaş, and was the father of actress Derya Arbaş Berti.
