OUR COMMUNITY

Red Nation Celebration’s (RNC) educational programs, projects, human
services and initiatives are important because they provide opportunities
to share our culture, heritage and rich history with Californian’s and
specifically, Angelinos. Los Angeles is home to the largest American
Indian & Indigenous population in the United States, beginning with
historic government termination and relocation programs in the 1960′s that
have resulted in more than 75,000 American Indians calling California
home. This rich and diverse history is relatively unknown to the general
population and many people are eager for this knowledge. The view of the
American Indian has been the typical stereotype perpetuated by Hollywood
and the entertainment industry. By presenting culture and art in its
diverse forms, we are able to provide a glimpse into the American Indian
perspective, while showcasing talented individuals that will provide
broader access to mainstream America and international audiences.

Red Nation-Los Angeles is the entertainment capital of the world, second
largest city in the country. Los Angeles is the most relevant place to
begin education and cultural exchange that current and potential
constituents are interested in. American Indian is a unique and
underserved community including being the silent minority for so long and
our organization gives voice to artistic and cultural expression that has
yet to be seen by the general population in this region. Our ability to
capture that expression through film, music, traditional dancing,
television, radio and the arts showcases the Native American Indian in
both traditional and contemporary forms. Our annual events/programs,
community cultural out-reach programs, human services, and heritage month
activities allow native and non-natives alike to gather and share ideas
and perspectives which supports our organizational goals of culture
exchange and education.

Red Nation-Santa Fe New Mexico during Indian Market over 100,000 tourists
from all over the world come in to town to experience American Indian art
in all its forms.  92 years of Indian Market and 17th year of Red Nation
Celebration. RNC and all it educational programs fosters cultural
preservation, inter-cultural understanding, and economic opportunities for
American Indians through excellence in the arts and new media.

The Authentic Voice of American Indian & Indigenous Nations in Film,
