All The Celebrities We’ve Lost In The Past Year

Sacheen Littlefeather

Sacheen Littlefeather was best known for being a Native American activist, model, and actress that was popular during the 70s. Marlon Brando asked Littlefeather to go to the 45th Academy Awards on his behalf as he wanted her to inform the academy that he wanted to decline his award for Best Actor and that Hollywood’s portrayal of Native Americans was not right.

Littlefeather gave a famous speech about how Hollywood portrayed Native Americans in a bad way and was the first to speak out on such a matter. Sadly, Littlefeather is no longer with us as she passed away on October 2nd from cancer at the age of 75.
