Event Details

Six Nations Women Singing Society

Co-sponsored by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton Fund

 

Working and singing together for over 50 years, these women know how to bring it home.

 

The Six Nations Women Singing Society, one of the most influential female Native American contemporary singing groups, was formed at the Six Nations of the Grand River First Nations in Ontario, Canada. Working and singing together for more than 50 years, the singers are members of the Seneca, Onondaga and Cayuga nations. The singing society focuses on the music and dance of the Longhouse tradition. They had performed at the 1997 Presidential Inauguration and at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah. Sadie Buck, the society’s head singer, is a member of both Six Nations and the Tonawanda Reservation in New York. She has taught at many universities including Harvard University, Hamilton College, the University of Toronto, Takitumu Trust in New Zealand and at the National Aboriginal and Islanders Skills Development Corporation in Australia.
