The American Heart Association was lucky enough to be a part of the 30th Annual Red Earth Festival at the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City. The award-winning festival features American Indian artists and dancers from throughout North America who celebrate the richness and diversity of their heritage with the world. During the Red Earth Festival Oklahoma City is the center of Native American art and culture in America.
The festival started off with the Red Earth grand parade. The streets of downtown Oklahoma City were filled with people that came together to celebrate in Native American tribal spirit as tribal representatives, in full regalia, make the Red Earth Parade one of America’s most unique.
People were able to walk the rows of vendor booths were you were able to buy contemporary and traditional examples of beadwork, basketry, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, paintings, graphics and cultural attire during the juried art show and market.
We got to meet with over 150 new advocates that shared their passion and concern for making the healthy choice the easy choice for all Oklahoman's!
