I don't know who did it but I guess the "correction" was wrong.

In this movie there are playing several Native Americans and I got an update with a corrected (imo "wrong) parsing of at least two of them:

Before: Clayton - Big Eagle  /  Maretta - Big Crow
After: Clayton - Big - Eagle  /  Maretta - Big - Crow

Is anybody out there knowing more about such names? I didn't accept the update of those two as they are definitely wrong in it. Writing their names the way starting with the name they would look:

Eagle, Clayton Big  /  Crow, Maretta Big

and this can't be true. Is it?

The parsing of any name will not change in your local database. It will only change in the database of the person submitting the new parsing. If you have Clayton/Big Eagle in your database, it will stay that way even if someone contributes Clayton/Big/Eagle.
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

I believe the correct entry for Clayton Big Eagle is as follows:

First Name: Clayton
Last Name: Big Eagle

Refer following links:
•  full name "Clayton Z. Big Eagle"
•  IMDB record

Could not find definitive information on Maretta Big Crow, but the usage of last names "Big Eagle" and "Big Crow" were made by:
Big Eagle (Dakota tribe in South Dakota)
Big Crow (Cheyenne tribe in Montana and Dakota tribe in South Dakota)
  where Dakota tribe = {Brule, Dakota, Hunkpapa, Lakota, Oglala, Sans Arc, Santee, Sioux, Sisseton, Wahpeton}

as per reference: Surnames in English of Native American Origin

Based on the last reference, I would have for Maretta Big Crow:
First Name: Maretta
Last Name: Big Crow

Hope that helps.

@huskersports: I knew that fact. This thread was only about if I am right with my way of parsing and by the confirmation of ObiKen I am right and the update was wrong.

@ObiKen: You just confirmed my presumption.

Shouldn't we start kind of schooling for contributors? Especially in the case of parsing there happen too many modifications from correct to wrong

Gotcha. Yes you were right in your parsing: Clayton/Big Eagle

The worst problem with cases like this is that the ones who do those false corrections most times don't read...
