New! You can do well AND do good by supporting us with your tax-deductible contributions. We’ve established a 501(c)(3) nonprofit so we can help more people in more ways – education, economic development, and cultural celebrations! First up, we’re raising $5,000 for our IndigenAHORA! Latin American Hip-Hop programs, with New Mexico’s own N8V ACE touring Chile in 2018. You can help in just a couple of clicks at ActBlue.
We’ve been creating unique cultural experiences since 1994 – from intimate artisan gatherings to multi-day festivals with international participation. You name it, we’ve probably done it, from the deserts of New Mexico to the steppes of Mongolia. We have long-standing relationships with leading contemporary Indigenous chefs, performing artists (Navajo hip-hop anyone?) and Indigenous organizations around the world.
We’ve also created and presented cultural marketing training programs around the globe for Indigenous artists with the support of numerous governments and NGOs.
Gordon Bronitsky, PhD, our resident visionary, is the founder and president of Bronitsky and Associates, dba IndigeNOW! Gordon was trained as an archeologist and anthropologist and received his PhD in anthropology from the University of Arizona in 1977. He loves working with Indigenous artisans and musicians to craft unique experiences of contemporary Indigenous cultures. For example, Dr. Bronitsky served as initiator and Executive Producer of ORIGINS: First Nations Festival™ which brought Indigenous theatre companies and performers from the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to theatres and venues all across London.
He regularly conducts arts and cultural marketing workshops in other countries, such as China and Russia, working with the U.S. State Department and countries’ cultural groups and embassies. Most recently, Dr. Bronitsky led a delegation of Navajo leaders for an Indigenous summit in Siberia and conducted an International Cultural Marketing Workshop in Zimbabwe.
