Chief Running Water is a Native American chief of the Ute Tribe. He appeared in the Season One episode, "Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut", and had a non-speaking role in "Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut". He also had a non-speaking background role in "201", present when Cartman learns the true identity of his father.


Eric Cartman asks his mother who his father is so he can attend the father and son dance. His mother tells him a story about the drunken barn dance and her encounter with Chief Running Water. Following this lead, Cartman visits the Ute reservation in the belief that he could be a Native American.


Chief Running Water has brown skin and wears an orange button up shirt, blue jeans, and cowboy boots. His hair is dark brown and gray and tied in long braids.
