Remember Will Leather Goods' collaboration with The Lone Ranger? Turns out, the "Native American chief" who handcrafted the $2,000 belts isn't actually Native American. A tipster points us to Jezebel's story revealing that Gabriel GoodBuffalo's real name is Lakota Sioux. The Turtle clan he claimed to be a part of doesn't exist. Will Leather has since updated their press release to remove his credit. [Jezebel via Racked Inbox; Previously]
