Buffy Sainte Marie is another magical being who doesn’t show her witchiness through occult study, cauldrons, crystals or tarot cards, but rather, through a devotion to change, a reverence for nature, a recognition of the power of ceremony. The nerve to go her own way. She sang, “Magic is Alive” and claims that the core of her belief system is Creativity. So by me, and for this circle, this coven of stories and knowledge and healing, Buffy Sainte Marie is undoubtedly holy. A Medicine Woman, with Medicine Songs.
