Sesame Street: Traditions with Zahn McClarnon and Native Instruments with Buffy Saint-Marie

Native actor Zahn McClarnon had fun sharing native traditions with Big Bird and the gang on Sesame Street! Nov 1, 2022 🎄♥️

Dark Winds Series as Navajo Police Chief Joe Leaphorn
“You remember Zahn McClarnon’s face. He infuses every part — resistant Cheyenne Reservation chief of police Mathias on Longmire, menacing mobster Hanzee Dent in Fargo, unpredictable Westworld host Akecheta — with a mixture of poise and intensity that electrifies the screen, rendering even his quietest parts unforgettable. Now, after 30 years in supporting roles, McClarnon steps up to lead in AMC neo-noir series Dark Winds and unleashes his vast skill set.” Vulture Magazine

 

Buffy Sainte-Marie also starred on Sesame Street. She played Buffy (a fictionalized version of herself) on Sesame Street from 1975 to 1981. She performed some of her own songs on the show, such as “Cripple Creek,” as well as songs written for the series (including “Country Song,” “Dog Song,” and the music to “Wynken, Blynken and Nod.”) 🎄♥️

“A new documentary [Carry It On] celebrating the unparalleled life of Buffy Sainte-Marie kicked off the Toronto International Film Festival Thursday, with her dynamic life of music and light keeping the audience enraptured by her story, personality, wisdom and joy.” M.
