Kim Winona, sometimes known as Constance Marlow (October 10, 1930—June 1978), was a Sioux Indian, originally from Nebraska, who appeared with Keith Larsen (1924-2006) in the CBS western television series Brave Eagle, which aired on Wednesday evenings for 26 episodes in the 1955-1956 season.
Her real name is also given as Constance Elaine Mackey
At 25, Winona played the role of Morning Star, the beautiful romantic interest of Larsen's title role of Brave Eagle, a fictitious 31-year-old Cheyenne chief. A Roy Rogers Production, Brave Eagle was the first series to present events from the view of the Indian, rather than the cowboy or the homesteader. The series bore such episode titles as "Blood Brother", "Cry of the Heron", "Gold of Haunted Mountain", "Search for the Sun", "Ambush at Arrow Pass", "Papoose", "Trouble at Medicine Creek", "Witch Bear", "Valley of Decision", and "War Paint".
Other stars of the series were Anthony Numkena, a Hopi Indian then using the stage name Keena Nomkeena, who appeared as Brave Eagle's foster son, Keena, and Bert Wheeler, who portrayed the Indian jokester and wise man Smokey Joe.
After Brave Eagle, Larsen starred in two other series: Northwest Passage (NBC, 1958-1959), about the exploits of Major Robert Rogers during the French and Indian War, and The Aquanauts (CBS, 1960-1961) about Pacific divers. According to the Internet Movie Data Base, Winona did not appear in any other acting role after Brave Eagle ceased production.
Winona died at the age of 47 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head
