Buffy Sainte-Marie

Buffy Sainte-Marie is a Cree songwriter, educator and artist.  She has performed everywhere from her home reservation to the Oscar stage, always with the goal of “trying to make things better, like everybody else.”  Since the ’80s, Buffy has focused on art and digital technology; she released an album on the fledging internet in 1989, and in 1994 exhibited large-scale, digital art she made on a Mac.  With a stint on Sesame Street and her own education foundation also to her credit, we salute Buffy Sainte-Marie for bravely challenging stereotypes and continually reinventing herself.  Photo:
