Support RED

Native American Student Union (NASU) of SOU


R.E.D. collaborates on an ongoing basis with the Native American Student Union (NASU) at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon. NASU hosts a "Welcome Back" Tribal Gathering and Pow Wow the week before Thanksgiving each year, in which R.E.D. has participated the last few years. This year R.E.D. hosted a Giveaway to local Tribes, Elders and Community leaders who reach out in the community to share traditions, teachings, stories and skills. We gifted members of the Klamath, Karuk, Hupa, Yurok, Warm Springs, Siletz and Takelma Peoples. We also gifted members of the SOU Native community, honoring Professors David West and Brent Florendo, along with Brent's student Drum. Our Giveaway theme included preserved food from our R.E.D. Community Garden Harvest.

R.E.D. collaborates also with Unete, who hosted the second annual "Corn Festival" at this year's NASU Tribal Gathering, honoring South American corn traditions and the importance of corn as a sacred food. R.E.D. and Unete form a non-profit entity, "Natives of One Wind Indigenous Alliance."

Other joint activities with NASU include the Stickball Games (Shinny) hosted most Sundays at 1 p.m. in Lithia Park, as well as helping to support the Annual Spring Pow Wow in April of each year.
