Laguna Pueblo welcomes 'The Lone Ranger' to reservation

"The Lone Ranger" will shoot on Laguna Pueblo in New Mexico.

The tribe hopes the filming will draw attention to reservations in the state. "There's been a great opportunity for the state of New Mexico for the film industry to really take the time to learn more about Native Americans," Gov. Richard Luarkie told KOAT-TV.

The film has been shooting on the Navajo Nation. It stars Johnny Depp as Tonto.
