Do lots and lots of trump overcome few points?

Today at a party bridge group, my partner and I held something like this, and I, playing South, opened 1.

North has only 1 point, but six trump to go along with at least five in my hand (since I opened a major).

What should North bid? It seems a shame to ignore all those hearts, but she only has 1 point?
