On the weekend of June 9-11th, the American Heart Association attended Oklahoma City’s award-winning Red Earth Festival, which features American Indian artists and dancers from all over North America who celebrate the richness and diversity of their heritage with the world.
At Red Earth, guests can sample the work of some of the nation’s most celebrated artists, with opportunities to purchase contemporary and traditional examples of bead work, basketry, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, paintings, graphics and cultural attire during the juried art show and market.
The Red Earth Fancy Dance Competition features the elite of Native American dance in Men's Fancy War Dance and Ladies Fancy Shawl. The masters, each exhibit their originality and skills in one of the most prestigious of all native dance competitions.
Over 400 residents of Oklahoma took action at Red Earth in support of adding physical activity requirements, nutrition standards and screen time limitations for early child care centers throughout Oklahoma to ensure future generations of Oklahomans have a healthy start to life. Let's give our youngest Oklahomans the best possible start with quality nutrition and physical activity so they can be heart-healthy superheroes! Stay tuned for more information on how you can help us advocate for this legislation during the interim.
