    +English Translation: 'Our hearts are full
    and our minds are good.
    Our ancestors come
    and give us strength.
    Stand tall, sing, dance
    and never forget who you are
    or where you come from.

    Second Translation by Lawrence Dunmore:
    Mahk jchi tahm buooi yahmpi gidi

    English translation:

    A hundred years have passed
    Yet I hear the distant beat of my father's drums.
    I hear his drums throughout the land.
    His beat I feel within my heart.
    The drum shall beat
    so my heart shall beat.
    And I shall live a hundred thousand years.

  • Ulali - Rattle Songs

    11:18

    This is a grouping of rattle songs from Ulali's first album, Mahk Jchi (1996). Enjoy!

    I have a selection of photos running from many of the well known Chiefs to actual photos from Elk Ridge and The Hostile Camp. Indians relaxing on Custer's Bluff and a re-enactment of Wounded Knee. Early gold miners in 1889 to Wild Bill Hickok's grave marker. If you'd like info on any of the photos used I would be happy to try to help.

    Rattles have always had a great part in the spiritual connection with the creator as well as for use in public gatherings. It is said that the rattles symbolize the animal, plant, and mineral kingdoms. The animal kingdom is exemplified in the form of the container or decorative feather of the rattle. The mineral kingdom is represented by the rocks that create the sound or also by the paint used for the artwork depicted on the rattle. And, the plant kingdom is symbolized by the handle.
    Native American rattles are made with a number of natural materials such as turtle shell, leather, rawhide, bead work and Native American feathers. Fur, fringe, seeds, rocks, antlers, horns, bones and shells are used to create that unique Indian style. Clay beads, blue corn, manzanita seeds or small smooth stones such as those found at the opening of an ant hill, are also sometimes put in the rattles to give it the desired sound.
    Thanks to for this info.

  • All My Relations

    3:33

    All Our Relations ~ Sang By: Ulali ~ Lyrics By: Pura Fe.
    A note about All My Relations The music for All My Relations is based on an
    Irish drinking song from the late 1700's. Gary Owen is actually the American
    pronunciation of two Gaelic words that roughly translate into Owen's Garden,
    (and I do mean roughly) which is or was a place in Ireland where people gathered
    to drink and whatever. It was listed as Auld Bessy at a publishing in 1788 and subsequently
    attributed to Jackson of Cork around 1800. It was adopted by the American military during the 1800's
    as a marching song.

    It is often referred to as Gary Owen March or Hale in the States. It was often used by the American military
    as they marched into battle to kill the Native Americans, most notably by Custer at the battle of Little Big
    Horn as he marched against the Lakota Nation. It continues to this day to be used by the American military.
    Pura Fe wrote the narative that Ulali speaks over the music. We use it as the background of the narrative to
    commemorate and honor all our relations and others who have died throughout the wars.

  • Ulali - Maybe

    4:44

    From their first album Mahk Jchi (1996). Ulali is one of the first Native American women's singing group. They sing a capella and often in many of the tribal languages. They are purists who have paved the way for more moderate Native American womens groups. Their songs are beautiful, fierce, touching. They sing out of strength. I saw them in Dayton, Ohio and they were delightful after the concert. Their music must be heard or seen to be believed.

    To our elders who teach us of our creation and of our past so that we may preserve Mother Earth for ancestors yet to come

    This is dedicated to our relatives before us, thousands of years ago
    And to the 150 million who were exterminated across the Western Hemisphere in the first four hundred year's time, starting in 1492

    To those who have kept their homelands
    And to the nations extinct due to mass slaughter, slavery, deportation and disease unknown to them
    And to the ones who are subjected to the same treatment today

    To those who survived the relocations
    And those who died along the way

    To those who carry on traditions and live strong among their people
    To those who left their communities by force or by choice and through generations no longer know who they are

    To those who search and never find
    To those who turn away the so-called non-accepted
    To those who bring us together
    And to those living outside, keeping touch, the voice for many

    To those that make it back to live and fight the struggles of their people
    To those that give up
    And those who do not care

    To those who abuse themselves and others
    And those who revive again

    To those who are physically, mentally, or spiritually incapable, by accident or by birth

    To those who seek strength in our spirituality and way of life
    To those who exploit it

    To those who fall for the lies and join the dividing lines that keep us fighting amongst each other

    To the outsiders who step in

    Going Home
    Lyrics by Pura Fé

    I'm going home, goin' home
    North Carolina is crying in my soul
    Creator I'm reaching out to you
    Tell them on the other side
    That they are alive within my soul

    Return their prayers that run through my veins
    Return the land and heal her pain
    The hidden truth, tell the world
    The blues -- where it comes from!

    I'm going home, goin' home

    Where the Neuse River
    Runs through a land
    Where my great grandmother sleeps
    Under the Earth, blood of
    Skarura nation was free

    I hear Nigerian chains
    They say are buried real deep
    Tobacco fields, Trail of tears
    Stolen people on stolen land

    Tell them, that I know

    (Stomp Dance)

  • Ulali - Mother - Live @ Muséum dHistoire naturelle de Rouen

    3:03

    Extrait du concert d'Ulali le 6 avril 2017 organisé par le 106 au Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Rouen

    Concert de musique traditionnelle (voix et percussions) suivi de la projection d'un documentaire vidéo sur la cause des « native americans » et d'un débat avec Pura Fé, membre de Ulali.

    Apparu à new york en 1987, Ulali a profondément rénové la tradition vocale amérindienne et depuis ne cesse d'entretenir un patrimoine fait de tambours et d'harmonies vocales, tout en s'emparant des thématiques contemporaines avec une conviction qui force l'admiration.

  • ULALI - Mahk Jchi 1994 Tuscarora We are The People

    2:46

    From the album Mahk Jchi 1994
    (Audio cassette recording).

    In ancient times a Tuscarora woman carried the name Ulali for her beautiful voice. Ulali is a songbird (wood thrush) name given to Pura Fe, Soni and Jennifer by Lawrence Dunmore of the Occaneechee Band of Saponi Nation in North Carolina. Ulali is a first nations women A Capella trio that sing in many styles and languages of their pe9ple of the
    western Hemisphere. We don't go by the name Native america, because our blood and people are older than
    America will ever be and we don't recognize the borders. Our brothers and sisters run from North to South and into and under the waters for miles and years back.
    WE ARE THE PEOPLE.

  • mahk jchi - - a capella cover

    2:43

    I don't own this song.
    I read that the language is Saponi or Sappony. (?)
    Ceiling art credit goes to the previous tenant (a 6-year old I think) of this room. ;)

    I'm someone who (among other things) loves languages and music. I don't speak most of the languages I attempt to sing in; it's really just for fun.
    It would be fun to sing this one in harmony with other people (or to get a program that let me record over myself).
    I wanted to share it with anyone who might have come across this song accidentally, and for the first time; -go find the other versions, and sing along!
    I've seen different translations of mahk jchi, and I'm sure it holds a lot of meaning for some. I love the warmth of the tune (and harmony, when it's there;) and the feeling of the song.

  • Ulali - Forgive Our Fathers Suite

    7:39

    This is an orchestrated song for the soundtrack of the movie, Smoke Signals. It is a long song. I want to get to the 'bare bones' of the music...forget the pretty stuff. To each his own - perhaps the 'pretty stuff' is what appeals to most. This is Forgive Our Fathers Suite with a slideshow of Native American modern imagery, artwork, & cave paintings. Enjoy!

  • Pura Fe - Mahk Jchi

    4:34

    Pura Fe's vocals soar in the manner of early Joni Mitchell. Her slide guitar is haunting. This is a totally new twist on Mahk Jchi & is a stunning musical treat! Originally released on Full Moon Rising, this is from the compilation album, The Rough Guide to Native America. Enjoy.

    Lyrics & Translation thanks to Ptay.MakaNahimana:
    *Mahk jchi tahm buooi yahmpi gidi Mahk jchi taum buooi kan spewa ebi Mahmpi wah hoka yee monk Tahond tani kiyee tiyee Gee we-me eetiyee Nanka yaht yamoonieah wajitse

    *English Translation: A hundred years have passed Yet I hear the distant beat of my father's drums. I hear his drums throughout the land. His beat I feel within my heart. The drum shall beat so my heart shall beat. And I shall live a hundred thousand years

  • Mahk jchi by Marlia project @Agni Spirit Fest 2019

    3:13

    This is one of my first live renditions of Mahk Jchi by Pura Fe, member of ULALI, a Native American women's acappella group, whose sound encompasses an array of indigenous music including Southeast United States choral singing (pre-blues and gospel) and pre-Columbian music.

    +English Translation:
    Our hearts are full
    and our minds are good.
    Our ancestors come
    and give us strength.
    Stand tall, sing, dance
    and never forget who you are
    or where you come from.

    A hundred years have passed
    Yet I hear the distant beat of my father's drums.
    I hear his drums throughout the land.
    His beat I feel within my heart.
    The drum shall beat
    so my heart shall beat.
    And I shall live a hundred thousand years.
