The Six Nations Women Singers is one of the most influential female Native American singing groups. An arm of the larger organization, the Six Nations Women's Singing Society, the group has recorded with Robbie Robertson and performed at the presidential inauguration in 1997. Formed on the Six Nations Reservation in Ohsweken, Ontario, Canada, the Six Nations Women Singers are led by Sadie Buck, a member of the Tonawanda Reservation in New York who teaches at McMaster University. The group, which includes members of the Seneca, Onondaga, and Cayuga tribes, focuses on the religious and social music and dance of the Longhouse tradition.
