The Redhawk Native American Arts Council is a not-for-profit organization founded and maintained by Indigenous American artists, performers, and educators residing in New York and New Jersey. Since 1994, Redhawk has been dedicated to supporting the urban Indigenous community and educating the general public about Indigenous American heritage through song, dance, theater, and other works of art and cultural forms of expression with a diverse group of Indigenous artists from the Americas to around the globe.
Redhawk offers programs with an Indigenous lens on issues such as climate change, water rights, Indigenous stereotypes, land preservation and programs for our local Indigenous communities with a special focus on our youth. In addition to the programs Redhawk offers, we also produce four of the largest Indigenous and Indigenous heritage celebrations in the Northeast. Redhawk’s educational programs serve to help students and educators gain a better understanding of Indigenous American history and of the diverse cultures represented within Indigenous America. We also encourage educators to re-think the current and outdated curriculum and integrate the knowledge we share and teach them.
