His first movie job was as a stunt rider in the 1987 film War Party which also had his brother, Tim. Tim later performed in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show at Disneyland Paris. Steve's first acting role, in 1988, was in Universal's Twins. His non-speaking role as Cheyenne Warrior #1 in the highly acclaimed Dances with Wolves in 1990 brought face recognition for the young actor and helped to open doors for additional roles. In 1993, he was cast as the Apache scout, Chato, in Geronimo: An American Legend starring Wes Studi as the titular warrior, another role that brought recognition to Steve as an actor. He is probably most recognized for his 1995 Native American lead role in Last of the Dogmen with Tom Berenger.
