Saginaw Grant, Actor
Saginaw Grant never set out to become an actor.
Grant was raised in Oklahoma and had a traditional two-parent upbringing with two brothers and a sister. One of his grandfathers was a medicine man, while the other was a spiritual leader, so the American Indian heritage in his family was of utmost importance.
In his youth, he worked many jobs and even served as a United States Marine. One day, someone asked him if he wanted to be in a car commercial. He said yes, and that started his career as an actor.
Grant has acted in over 30 movies and television shows, such as The Lone Ranger, Beyond the Quest, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, Saving Grace, Breaking Bad, and Community.
Grant is a motivational speaker, a traditional dancer, and a respected member of the Sac-n-Fox, Iowa and Otoe-Missouria Nations.
