Year awarded: 2018, Round 2

On Friday, October 19th at the Bing Crosby Theatre in Spokane, Buffy Sainte-Marie will headline the One Heart Annual Festival with a 75 min set of her most classic songs, as well as songs from her recently released album. Sainte-Marie will kickstart One Heart Native Arts and Film Festival’s theme “Honoring Our Women,” bringing to attention the horrific issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG), and reaching out to the greater Spokane population with a rich presentation of Indigenous arts and culture.

SAGA is pleased to support this local, two-day festival as it prepares for its third year.
