Buffy Sainte-Marie : God Is Alive, Magic Is Afoot Buffy Sainte-Marie found and admired this passage in Leonard Cohen's second novel, "Beautiful Losers". While visiting Leonard one day, she sang it to him. First released as part of her pioneering album, "Illuminations," this song was recorded anew for Buffy's "Up Where We Belong" recording. A Cree songwriter born in Saskatchewan, Buffy has long been a devoted social activist, a voice for Native rights, founder of the Cradleboard Teaching Project, star on Sesame Street, and an artist exploring her work through modern digital media. For many years, unknown to her, Buffy's work was blacklisted and denied radio play as a result of pressure from government representatives in the United States during the 1970s. She later won an Academy Award for the song, "Up Where We Belong". Her latest work, a 'comeback' album of sorts, is called "Running For The Drum". I know of few artists who possess the grace and fire of Buffy Sainte-Marie.

Dreamcatcher...Music By Cusco I love the Dreamcatcher Legends~~ The dream net has been made for many generations where spirit dreams have played. Hung above the cradle board or in the lodge up high. The dream net catches bad dreams while good dreams slip on by. Bad dreams become entangled among the sinew thread. Good dreams slip through the center hole while you dream upon your bed. This is an ancient legend, since dreams will never cease, hang this dream net above your bed. Dream on and be at Peace

One More Time In 1963, recovering from a throat infection Buffy Sainte-Marie became addicted to codeine and recovering from the experience became the basis of her song "Cod'ine" With her permission we recorded our version of "Cod'ine" and re-titled it, "One More Time." Hopefully our video will bring more public awareness of the drug problem we have in our country. Buffy Sainte-Marie developed the Cradleboard Teaching Project. Founded in 1997, it has a curriculum that aims to raise self-identity and self-esteem in present and future generations of Native American children by introducing them to enriching, accurate information about Native American people and cultures. Many people like Buffy Sainte-Marie have overcome their addictions and gone on to become productive members of society. Clips from the documentary, "Tweaked" was used in making this video. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction please seek help before it's too late.

Zachary laughing We are trying to make Zachary laugh talking in a high speech voice. Enjoy 09/04/2006 Book Description Baby's First Laugh is a board book published by Salina Bookshelf of Flagstaff, Arizona. This bilingual board book is set in the Southwest among the contemporary Navajo Nation. The colourful illustrations by Beverly Blacksheep show an infant in a cradleboard. The reader is told this is Baby. Next we meet her parents and family members. Each person introduced tries to make Baby laugh. But Baby finds nothing funny and simply cries when her father tickles her, mother sings to her, older sister plays with her, older brother makes faces at her, and grandfather bounces Baby on his knee. No one can make Baby laugh it seems. The final person to try is grandmother. She succeeds in making Baby laugh by reading Baby a story. The simple sentences use repetition effectively by asking which family member will make Baby laugh and repeating the question for each relative. The text is written in English and Navajo. While the publishers designed the board book to appeal to Navajo preschool and kindergarten-age children, this book will appeal to all young children. The positive images of family members and the final page stressing reading make this book an important addition to the limited Native-content board book collection.
Buffy Sainte-Marie on Uprising Radio Artists are often tagged as prolific but few have earned the distinction as thoroughly as my guest Buffy Sainte-Marie. Sainte-Marie was born on a Cree reservation in Saskatchewan, Canada, and raised in the United States. In the 1960s she became known as a singer and songwriter of protest and love songs, and her songs have been recorded by artists ranging from Janis Joplin, to Neil Diamond. Sainte-Marie was blacklisted from radio play during the Lyndon Johnson administration due to the political nature of her lyrics. Following this she left the music business while raising her son, Dakota, appearing with him on Sesame Street regularly. In 1982 Sainte-Marie won an academy Award for the song, Up Where We Belong in the film, an Officer and a Gentleman. In 1969 Sainte-Marie started a philanthropic non-profit fund, the Nihewan Foundation for American Indian Education, devoted to improving Native American students participation in learning. In 1996 she founded the Cradleboard Teaching Project, with projects reaching Native communities in eleven states, including the Cree, Hawaiian, and Apache communities. She is a sought-after speaker, lecturing at colleges and civic venues on a wide variety of topics including film scoring, electronic music, songwriting, and Native American studies.

New Beginning At The Foundry A NEW BEGINNING Edition of 40 (28 inches tall, 24 inches long, and 11 inches deep) It's the 1840s. Jacob came out to make his fortune trapping beaver 10 years before. One winter, he was caught by himself in a valley surrounded by mountains, who's passes were impossible to get through, because of a sudden snow storm. He was near starved when he was found by two Blackfoot Warriors. They took him back to their encampment, to brag how they captured this white man. He was treated badly, and forced to act like a dog. Doing anything the woman wanted him to do. Gathering wood, making fires, watching over cooking meat. One day, Jacob was gathering wood, when he heard a terrible scream. He ran to see what was causing the terror. He saw a flash of gray fur, then a woman running with a club in her hand. His eyes again focused on the ground, where he saw terrible sign. Wolf tracks and it was dragging something heavy in the snow. He broke a straight stick. and using it as a spear, he took off after that wolf. There the wolf was, dragging a baby by the cradle board. The mountain man ran faster than any time in his life, caught up the wolf, and threw the makeshift spear at it. It buried into the side of the wolf, it yelp in pain and then dropped the baby. He ran off into the underbrush to die. Jacob, quickly gathered up the baby, and gave it back to a very grateful mother. From that point on, Jacob became part of the tribe.
