Get up-close and personal with an Indigenous icon! imagineNATIVE is thrilled to offer this free and exciting opportunity for Festival audiences to spend an evening with Buffy Sainte-Marie as she joins Wab Kinew host of CBC’s 8th Fire to travel through her illustrious and boundary-breaking career as an activist, musical performer, songwriter, pioneering new media artist, educator and icon. Come ask questions about her work, life and legacy. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is not to be missed before her headlining performance at imagineNATIVE’s The Beat on Saturday, October 22 at the Phoenix Concert Theatre.”
