Native American accepts apology from Oscars after abuse in 1973

The actress and activist Sacheen Littlefeather has accepted an apology from the Oscars almost 50 years after she was booed off stage.

In 1973 she took to the stage in a traditional buckskin dress to turn down an Oscar on behalf of Marlon Brando and then made a speech about the film industry’s mistreatment of Native Americans.
