#365 Indigenous: Buffy Sainte-Marie
It’s should come as no surprise that Buffy Sainte-Marie, Cree singer-songwriter-activist-icon, be celebrated on RAVEN’s #365 Indigenous series.
With a life dedicated to Indigenous sovereignty and leadership, Buffy has impacted generations of people with her music and empowering messages. She is an advocate for youth autonomy, women’s rights, climate justice, and more.
Her music has become anthem to many who need to be uplifted or feel activated, while still addressing the issues caused by ongoing colonialism and the status quo. With a career active since 1964, there is a plethora of Buffy Sainte-Marie stories, songs and works to be inspired by.
