BUFFY | Sterling Silver Statement Necklace | Solidarity Collection
A large handcrafted sterling silver statement necklace created to honor the strength, courage, and spirit of Buffy Sainte-Marie.
Sometimes people tell me, ‘Oh, you’re such a warrior for peace,’” Sainte-Marie says. “But I’m not a warrior at all. What I represent is new thinking about alternative conflict resolution. That’s quite different from the war racket and quite possibly a real step to a safe future. – Buffy Sainte-Marie
Buffy Sainte-Marie, the internationally renowned singer-songwriter was blackballed in the 1970s by the then U.S. administrations. They recognized the power of her songwriting and activism and deemed her an “artist to be suppressed.” Buffy Sainte-Marie’s songs all but disappeared from the US music industry.
People sometimes ask me, because of the blacklisting, “Do you hate the government? Don’t you hate white people?” No, it’s greed that’s the problem. – Buffy Sainte-Marie
Buffy Sainte-Marie was born in 1941 to Cree parents on the Piapot Reserve near Regina, Saskatchewan. She gained recognition for her war protest songs like “Universal Soldier” and her music about the native peoples.
