Ulali, a First Nations female a cappella trio, will perform at Syracuse University on Nov. 1 as part of the Syracuse Symposium 2005: Borders.
The performance begins at 8 p.m. in Crouse College’s Setnor Auditorium, and is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Irving Garage. Co-sponsors are U.Encounter, the SU College of Law’s Center for Indigenous Law, Governance and Citizenship, and the Native American Student Association at SU.
Ulali is widely considered the first Native women’s group to create a unique musical sound from its members’ traditional roots and contemporary experiences as First Nations women. Its music is political, humorous and powerful and speaks eloquently about the accomplishments and struggles of First Nations peoples.
The trio has toured and recorded with the Indigo Girls and been featured on the soundtracks of “Smoke Signals” (Miramax, 1998) and the documentary “Native Americans” (Turner, 1994).
