Iron Eyes Cody (April 3, 1904 January 4, 1999) was an American actor. He was recognized for portraying a Native American in Hollywood films, and he lived as a Native American as an adult. He and his wife Bertha, who was Native American, adopted several Native American children. In 1995 Cody was honored by the Native American community for his portrayals in films. The next year, a newspaper revealed his Sicilian ancestry, which he denied.
