Indigenous Oscar winner Taika Waititi gave respect from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences tonight at the OSCARS

The Academy would like to acknowledge that they are gathered on the ancestral lands of the Tongva Tataviam and Chumash. We acknowledge them as the first people of this land on which our motion picture community lives and works

Excellent! Lets hope FEDERAL recognition follows.  Native Actor Wes Studi was honored.
