Buffy Sainte-Marie's bold new album, Power in the Blood, won two Juno Awards (Canadian Grammys), one for Aboriginal Album of the Year and another for Contemporary Roots Album. Its message about the road to self-identity and the conviction to be oneself, still resonates with the Cree singer-songwriter, activist, educator, visual artist, and winner of countless awards. Perhaps you know Sainte-Marie from her 1960s protest anthems, her open-hearted love songs, her incendiary powwow rock music, or the juggernaut pop hit "Up Where We Belong," which she co-wrote for An Officer and a Gentleman. Sainte-Marie is a fearless songwriter who is committed to the indigenous people of the Americas and to telling the people's history.
