Wes Studi to Present at 90th Oscars Ceremony

Wes Studi to Present at 90th Oscars Ceremony

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown February 26th, 2018 Last Updated on: February 26th, 2018

I'm usually a channel flipper when awards shows are on, checking in every now and then but not staying too tuned in. Well, the Oscars have just recently announced some more presenters at this year's awards show and Wes Studi was one of them! Now I have a reason to really watch.

From their press release:

“Studi most recently starred in “Hostiles” (2017). His starring credits also include the Oscar-winning films “Avatar” (2009), “The Last of the Mohicans” (1992) and “Dances with Wolves” (1990). Additionally, he appeared in the Oscar-nominated films “The New World” (2005) and “Geronimo: An American Legend” (1993). He will next appear in “A Dog's Way Home.”

Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the Oscars will air live on Sunday, March 4, on the ABC Television Network. Will you be tuning in?

Healing…………..the scars of the past. I fully agree with Ms. Ratigan. The Native People have been used, abused, copied, etc.
BUT They/We are still here. Fight for Justice, but not with Anger but with Progression and Heart, standing firm for what is True and Right. It is a Balance to “fight” through the Heart. But it is the ONLY way this Planet, our Mother Earth, and all those upon Her can Heal.


Don’t know how I feel about this….crept, maybe, just maybe, this is a good starting place for people of color. Not just a black or white thing. I am a mexica women, born and raised in CA……as far as I know this is a “first” and hope not the last……….


Congratulations to the Native nations !!

I have studied Native American culture (s) for many years .Of course this celebration and recognition of Native Americans has come late .

No matter …… Im deliriously happy for this huge step for all Native Americans

I would be watching… but with Hollywood’s horrible bias against our president as well as Jimmy Kimmel…I refuse to support the show…as for Studi…he deserves to be a presenter and much more….I am very sympathetic to the native american cause…..
