Guest Buffy Sainte-Marie

Born on a Cree reserve in Saskatchewan, Buffy Sainte-Marie's place in history would be secure even if she never wrote another song after 'Universal Soldier' - the anti-war anthem that was immediately adopted by the burgeoning 1960s peace movement.

Add to that an Oscar for co-writing 'Up Where We Belong', from 'An Officer and a Gentleman', and the fact that she was blacklisted for speaking out against war and speaking up for aboriginal people, and Buffy Sainte-Marie is every inch a Canadian icon.
