The Redhawk Native American Arts Council is a not-for-profit organization founded and maintained by native American artists and educators residing in the New York City area.  Since  1994, the council has been dedicated to educating the general public about Native American heritage within cities, strengthening an often underrepresented minority.  The Council represents artists from North, South, and Central America, Caribbean, and Polynesian Indigenous cultures.
