Kudos to New Moon‘s Summit Entertainment and director Chris Weitz for bringing on board award-winning casting director Rene Haynes who is well-known for her work on Native projects ranging from Dances With Wolves to Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee. Each member of the wolf pack she cast is of Native American/First Nation descent: actors Chaske Spencer (Sioux), Bronson Pelletier (Cree-Metis), Alex Meraz Purepecha-Tarasco), Kiowa Gordon (Hualapai), and Tyson Houseman (Cree).
