has now won four awards:

Hosted and narrated by actor Wes Studi ("Dances With Wolves"), this is the
compelling documentary on Ely Parker (Seneca), a 19th-Century American
Indian who defied racial barriers to succeed in two very different worlds.
As Civil War Secretary to General Ulysses S. Grant, he wrote down the terms
of surrender at Appomattox. Yet his successes became tainted with
controversy, and his quest for the American dream turned tragic.
