CBC Reports Buffy Sainte Marie Scandal?

Post by Ben Zonia » Sat Oct 28, 2023 11:56 pm

The CBC is reporting this, not some "Right Wing Conspiracy Publication".

Says Buffy was neither born in Canada, nor is she of Native American/Indigenous origin.

Father was named Santamaria, apparently Italian, which translates to Sainte Marie in French. Birth Certificate says she was born in Massachusetts.

Seriously...quite fascinating. I've bookmarked the story to read in full later. Thanks for posting.

As said in the Seinfeld episode “The Contest” Fake, Fake, Fake. But in all actuality, the woman was talented and did a lot for the Canadian Indigenous Community. Yes she did wrong by lying, but give her credit for the good that she has done during her career. She’s still is a great Canadian Talent.

I heard this story on NPR a week or two ago. Seems like she should spit in a little container and send it off to 23AndMe.

Is the Buffy Sainte Marie scandal greater, lesser, or about equal to the Elizabeth Warren scandal? As I recall, Elizabeth Warren is something like 1/1024 Indigenous/Native American heritage, genetically indistinguishable from the average American. But her supporters don't see anything wrong with that.

Elizabeth 1/1024 Indigenous/Native American, Buffy 0 Indigenous/American (or even Canadian). Envelope please, and the winner is Elizabeth for being 1/1024th of Indigenous Native American. But does it really matter.

Ever done an Ancestry or 23 and Me, or something like that?
If you parents and grandparents grew up in the Mitten, you probably have more than Elizabeth Warren and don't realize it.

Actually I did a 23and Me a year or so ago. It was a gift from my kids.

Actually you are making an assumption on Buffy without any real knowledge about her ancestry going back a few generations. .

I was just reading what was in the envelope when they handed it to me.
