Here are the Adam Beach top five achievements in film and television:

Ira Hayes in Clint Eastwood's Flags of our Fathers An intense. at times overwhelming performance in Clint Eastwood's 2006 masterpiece as the iconic Ira Hayes, the Pima Indian who was one of the soldiers who raised the American flag after the Battle of Iwo Jima.

Squanto: A Warrior’s Tale

Character in Weekly Series Not worthy of single spot but worth a mention. Performances include Tommy Flute in HBO's acclaimed Mormon multiple wives series, Big Love. Detective Chester Drake in Law and Order, SVU. Snake Eater in Combat Hospital and George Keesig on Moose TV.

Lead character in weekly television series Beach is Bobby Martin in CBC's Arctic Air where he's the brash owner and pilot of a northern pickup and delivery service where bush pilots fly the dangerous and sexy skies.

Squanto, The Last Great Warrior Beach is Squanto in this live action Disney extravanganza. It's beautiful to look at and melodramatic to the max and at a certain age you loved it. It's Disney. Beach plays the Last Great Warrior to perfection.

Frank Fencepost keeps it real His Frank is an unbelievably real creation. In the Aboriginal community we all know someone like Frank in the neighbourhood and in the community. Funny, naïve, adorable and loyal - almost like a puppy. Frank is an indelible character and Beach's natural, honest performance in Dance Me Outside makes it real.
