Red Nation Concert Series

JOE WALSH AND JENNIFER WARNES ALLIES TO INDIAN COUNTRY JOIN RED NATION CELEBRATION INSTITUTE’S CONCERT SERIES: ARTISTS IN SOLIDARITY FOR SYSTEMIC CHANGE THROUGH THE ARTS. MUSIC HAS THE POWER TO BRING US ALL TOGETHER 

Red Nation Celebration Institute (RNCI) is the longest standing Native-Led organization in the City of Los Angeles, launching its first benefit concert in its 25 year history. 

Red Nation Celebration Institute started out as a ‘concert series’ in 1995 in Santa Fe NM during the world’s famous Indian Market. RNCI went on to produce the ‘concert series’ held during ‘Grammy Week’ and became a Grammy event in 2003 in NYC. Indigenous music is the original music of this land. RNCI has grown to include the first Native Film Festival in Los Angeles, first Native Women in Music concert series, first Native Women in FILM Festival, first online streaming media company Red Nation Television Network and all its year round programs and ground-breaking initiatives.

RNCI founder Joanelle Romero said, “The Entertainment Industry and the Music Industry has far too long left Indian Country behind. Our Native talent is extraordinary, and we are collectively, at a point in history where it is no longer acceptable.  No matter what, RNCI with a  25-year history of cohesive research-informed strategies, ground-breaking initiatives, year round programs with strong focus on partnerships has been creating systemic change through the arts and media since 1995. To deny our right to be at the table in all media platforms is to do violence to the principles of freedom and equality.”

Joe Walsh and Jennifer Warnes lend their support to raise funds for RNCI year round programs.  Other featured artists to perform live (virtually) include Joanne Shenandoah (Grammy Award Winner),  Joanelle Romero (first artist produced by the legendary Leonard Cohen).  Cary Morin (Independent Music Awards Winner), Hook Herrera (musician/Blues), Tony Gilkyson (son of Jane Gilkyson and songwriter/folk musician Terry Gilkyson, as well as the brother of singer-songwriter Eliza Gilkyson), Richard T Bear (singer/songwriter/founder of MAP eventually became part of the Recording Academy’s MusiCares Foundation). You will hear from Michael Greyeyes (Rutherford Falls)Tatanka Means (actor, Once Upon a River/RNCI winner Best actor), Graham Greene (actor/AMPAS nominee/RNCI Lifetime Achievement Award 2020), Bruce Sugar (record producer/engineer/Ringo Starr/Joe Walsh)Shari Belafonte (actor/Sistas/The Morning Show),  Susan Masten (served as President of theNational Congress of American Indians [NCAI] 1999–2001) and Congresswoman Deb Haaland. Full List of Artists.
