​Since 1991, Red Eagle Soaring has mentored hundreds of Native youth, staged over 170 productions, and supported youth access to the healing power of Native cultural traditions which promote social, physical, and intellectual engagement. In bringing together Native youth to learn about the technical aspects and process of theatre, they also build a community of people interested in learning about, sharing, promoting, and supporting Native arts and cultural life ways.
RES programming supports the ‘Since Time Immemorial’ Washington state tribal history and sovereignty curriculum developed by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. We are committed to teaching our youth Native tradition, history, and culture that reflects the diversity of tribal origins in Seattle’s urban multicultural setting.
