    Over the course of the Festival, there were a multitude of special events, including the Red Earth Award Ceremony and Celebration Dinner, special dance performances, art and music performances as well as demonstrations and lectures. These events offered a glimpse into the rich and diverse Native art and culture, set against the backdrop of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum​​.

    The event wouldn't have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors, including The Chickasaw Nation, Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, Allied Arts, Chickasaw Community Bank, Vickie Norick, Kirkpatrick Family Fund, OKC Convention & Visitors Bureau, Oklahoma's News 4, Tinker Federal Credit Union, and Winton Law.
