Buffy Sainte-Marie, born in 1941, has developed a career that spans decades and domains. An icon of the 60s folk scene, her music career is still going strong with 20 albums to her credit. Her songs, both beautiful and politically charged, continue to highlight the social issues of the day, but her activism does not stop there.

Buffy Sainte-Marie, born on a Plains Cree First Nation in Saskatchewan, Canada, has always been a voice for Indigenous rights in North America. She operates the Nihewan Foundation for Native American Education, which offers free resources to teachers to assist in the education of and about Indigenous peoples and cultures.

In addition to being a pop star and an activist, she is also an accomplished visual artist whose work portrays a number of subjects and themes that draw from her love of dance, design and Indigenous cultures. Her work can be found on public display in a number of permanent collections in central Canada and the American Southwest.
