Wes Studi at the Oscars

Wes Studi made history Sunday night becoming the first Native American presenter on the Oscar stage.

The Oklahoma native and Cherokee citizen introduced a montage of military movies during the 90th Academy Awards, thanking veterans for their service. Studi himself served 18 months in Vietman with the Army’s 9th Infantry Division.

Before beginning the montage, Studi gave his thanks to his fellow veterans, speaking in the Cherokee language: “Hello. Appreciation to all veterans and Cherokees who’ve served. Thank you!”
