Longtime actor Wes Studi, Cherokee, has become the first Native American to be awarded an Oscar. Known for prominent portrayals in "Dances with Wolves," "Last of the Mohicans" and "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" among many others, Studi is one of four Honorary Award recipients chosen by the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The Board of Governors announced June 3 that Studi, filmmaker David Lynch and director Lina Wertmüller would receive the awards, along with a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award going to actress Geena Davis. The awards are reserved for contributions that fall outside the normal Oscar categories, the Academy says on its website. Read more about the award on Military.com.
