Native America: Northwest Stories - Red Eagle Soaring


Red Eagle Soaring (RES) is a Seattle-based non-profit organization serving urban Native American youth ages 10-19 with free programming integrating contemporary theatre and traditional Native performing arts. RES engages Native youth and their families in critical discussions about the issues affecting their lives and provides a cultural peer group in which to build confidence, identity, and community.

Since their formation 22 years ago, RES has mentored hundreds of youth, staged 165 productions, and supported youth access to the healing power of Native cultural traditions that promote social, physical and intellectual engagement. The organization teaches students both the technical aspects of theatre production as well as the ways in which storytelling builds community.

This past August, we spent time with Red Eagle Soaring’s 2018 SIYAP (Seattle Indian Youth Arts and Performance) class, documenting their two-week journey as they wrote, produced and staged a 30-minute theatrical production titled THE SPIRIT OF LOVE.
