    I used the documentary “The War That Made America” for years in class. His handling of the native perspective made for interesting discussions as students realized there were other points of view in American history. Thanks.

    I’ve been a fan of Mr. Greene’s for a long time. Most recently I’ve enjoyed his convincing performance as a corrupt police chief in Longmire. Other work I’ve seen: Dances with Wolves, Dry Lips Ought to move to Kapuskasing, and some other tv roles. Looking up his films, I had no idea that he had been in so many! I’ll have to catch up on my viewing. Congratulations!

    I FIRST MET MR. GREENE WHEN HE DID “THUNDERHEART” WHICH IS JUST ABOUT MY FAVORITE MOVIE EVER. HIS CHARACTER WAS REALLY BELIEVABLE AND HIS PERSONAL CHARACTER SHONE THROUGH. I’VE BEEN A FAN EVER SINCE. LOVED HIS CHARACTER IN “DANCES WITH WOLVES” TOO. CONGRATULATIONS GRAHAM GREENE FOR YOUR “ORDER OF CANADA” RECOGNITION AND FOR BEING SUCH A GREAT AND OUTSTANDING REPRESENTATIVE OF THE INDIAN NATIONS.
