She was born Beverly Sainte-Marie on February 20, 1941 or 1942 (references do not agree on her birth year) on the Piapot Cree Indian reserve in the Qu’Appelle valley, Saskatchewan, Canada. She was orphaned and later adopted, growing up in Maine with parents Albert and Winifred Sainte-Marie, who were related to her biological parents. She attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst, earning degrees in teaching and Oriental philosophy[6] and graduating in the top ten of her class. In 1964 on a return trip to the Piapot Cree reserve in Canada for a Powwow she was welcomed and (in a Cree Nation context) adopted by the youngest son of Chief Piapot, Imu Piapot and his wife, who added to Sainte-Marie’s cultural value of, and place in, native culture.
