Red Nation International Film Festival ‘On the Road’ Santa Fe, NM

Santa Fe Program

Leading up to the world’s famous Indian Market Weekend.

RNCI LEGACY WITH INDIAN MARKET #NewMexicoTrue

Red Nation Celebration Institute (RNCI) was established out of a direct need and today is an industry standard. RNCI has its roots in Santa Fe, New Mexico, during the famous Indian Market (est. 1995); RNCI partnered with Southwest Association of Indian Arts (SWAIA) Don Owen, executive director at that time. RNCI pioneered the music movement during Indian Market August 1995 at the Paolo Soleri Amphitheatre to a sold out audience. In 1995 there wasn’t any contemporary American Indian music being performed, since the inception of Indian Market.

Lisa Hill has powers. She can foretell death, She sees mythical creatures. She talks with the dead. She has harrowing visions. She left Kitamaat, her ocean-side village, hoping if she partied hard enough in Vancouver, her visions and the grief they inflicted would disappear. But when a warning from her dead cousin sends her racing back home, Lisa realizes the partying didn’t work. Her visions are back – with a vengeance. Her childhood visions of her younger brother Jimmy have returned. In them, Jimmy drowns.
