Meet Buffy Sainte-Marie

MacLeod, Elizabeth (Author). Deas, Mike, 1982- (Added Author).

Meet Buffy Sainte-Marie, music legend, activist and teacher! Buffy Sainte-Marie is not exactly sure where or when she was born, but it was likely the Piapot Reserve in the Qu'Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan. As a baby she was adopted out to a white family in the United States. But nothing would stop Buffy from connecting to her roots and sharing the power and the beauty of her heritage with the world. Buffy's songs have inspired three generations of fans, garnering international acclaim and many awards. But her talents don't stop there! She's an accomplished visual artist and has broken important ground on television, including a regular stint on Sesame Street. A peace activist from the start, Buffy became an advocate for education, creating programs for Indigenous students in 1969, then in 1996 taking full advantage of computer technology to connect classrooms worldwide to share Indigenous learning. Still an activist today, she is a prominent supporter of Idle No More. After an incredible career lasting more than 60 years, Buffy's music and message is as uplifting and important today as it ever was.
