‘Thank you to everyone who joined us at this year’s 25th RNCI Red Nation Awards presented by Red Nation Television Network and Red Nation Celebration Institute. With attendees and filmmakers across the United States and around the world, we came to you virtually, from everywhere, we reached every single indigenous nation.   The success of the festival this year was beyond anything we’ve experienced in previous years. The challenge now is making the impossible possible, in hiring native talent in front of and behind the camera and financially investing in natives in charge of their narrative. Native and Indigenous rights are human rights and human rights are linked to the power of film, we are visible.” – Joanelle Romero, Red Nation Celebration Institute, founder, producer, curator.  

The RNCI RED NATION AWARDS 2020 concluded last night with live broadcast on Red Nation Television Network, Red Nation International Film Festival, and on Facebook Live.
