August Shellenberg (1936-2013), was a Canadian actor of Mohawk and Swiss-German descent. Trained at the National Theatre School of Canada, Shellenberg appeared in many roles in theatre, film and television, earning a Genie for his role in Black Robe and an Emmy for his role as Chief Sitting Bull in Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. Shellenberg died at age 77 shortly after completing a lifelong ambition of mounting an all-aboriginal version of King Lear.
