See updates and more information about the film, Sacheen, at One Bowl Production: At a time when the visibility of today’s women’s voices are so present, it is also a time to honor those who came before and led the way. Sacheen Littlefeather remains proud that she is the first person (and, as she always adds, the first woman of color) to utilize the Academy Awards to make a political statement. Today, let us be mindful that it is through the powerful medium of film, that the truth of her brave proclamation spoke to a world audience. As the 90th Academy Awards takes place, her words still ring with the same offering of truth, reconciliation, and healing as they did 45 years ago.
Let us join together the influencers and women who are the backbone of Standing Rock, Black Lives Matter, Me Too, and Time’s Up movements to celebrate Sacheen and to thank her for her leadership, heart, dignity, and courage.
Sacheen Littlefeather “A society that does not recognize diversity is an atrocity.”
