Redx Talks

Iiniistsi (Blackfoot) — “the beginning”: a sacred agreement between two parties; honouring an agreement made; harmony; making peace.

Through art, cultural, and educational programming, Iiniistsi Treaty Arts Society explores iiniistsis (treaties) between Indigenous and Settler cultures and individuals; treaties past, present, and possible. REDx Talks, the International Intertribal Indigenous speaker series, is Iiniistsi Treaty Arts Society’s 1st branch of work; an evolving community of some of the most influential elders, creatives, thinkers and agents of change on Indigenous topics and issues. Founded by Cowboy Smithx in 2008, REDx promotes stories of Resilience and Empowerment, while facilitating Discourse (RED) around issues important to Indigenous people around the world.
