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.
