Academy Award winner Buffy Sainte-Marie’s audacious attitude to life on and off the stage has inspired people around the world for over four decades. Since the early ‘60s, Buffy Sainte-Marie has toured North America's colleges, reservations and concert halls, meeting both significant acclaim and huge misperception from audiences and record companies who expected Pocahontas in fringes, and instead were both entertained and educated with their initial dose of Native American reality in the first person.

As one of the most acclaimed artists of our time, she has created 17 albums of her music, three of her own television specials, spent five years on Sesame Street, scored movies, raised a son, earned a Ph.D. in Fine Arts, taught Digital Music as adjunct professor at several colleges and won both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award Oscar for the song, “Up Where We Belong.” Buffy Sainte-Marie’s international hit “Until It's Time for You to Go,” was recorded by Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Barbara Streisand and Cher; and “Universal Soldier” became the anthem of the peace movement.

It is a true honour to welcome Buffy to Pictou as part of our Canada 150 celebrations.
