Power of the Voice, Heart of the Drum - Six Nations Women Singers
The Six Nations Women Singers is a Haudenosaunee vocal ensemble that has been performing for over thirty years. They are part of a larger singing society which is a "Mutual Aid Society" within their Six Nations Community. The money they raise by performing is given back to the community to serve needy individuals or families. They have performed at the American Folklife Festival, the New Orleans Jazz Festival, on university campuses all across North America, and in many international venues. Their CD, We Will All Sing, was released in 1996, and they participated in the Smithsonian Institution's production of Heartbeat: Voices of First Nations Women recordings (1995, 1998).
Members of the Six Nations Women Singers are Sadie Buck (Director), Charlene Bomberry, Betsy Buck, Pat Hess, Janice G. Martin, and Jaynane Burning.
