Iron Eyes Cody was an American actor. He portrayed Native Americans in Hollywood films. He also played an Indian shedding a tear about litter.

Cody was born Espera Oscar de Corti on April 3, 1904, in Kaplan in Vermilion Parish, in southwestern Louisiana, a second son of Antonio de Corti and his wife, Francesca Salpietra, immigrants from Sicily.

…and until today, I didn’t know that.  But after reading that I looked at the same picture again and it’s as clear as the nose on (his) your face.
