Redbird has a wonderful Blanket & Toy donation event that helps many Native Americans in need, as well as a great non-profit educational center @ Chilao School that offers Free Learning Experiences regarding environment, wildlife, water protection, & National Forest recovery.

Redbird has also provided several educational programs for the local Library which included Native American: story-telling, different types of songs & their meanings, and styles of traditional dances & origins

Corina is a delight to work with....

Redbird helped me soar. It's headquartered at the heart of the Angeles Forest. It connects us to who we were and who we are to become. It allows for the freedom of thought and connections to tribes that otherwise would never step on the same paths. It is led by an individual who continually re-creates but keeps the old message the same. It never forgets the old ways but opens itself up to the new. Never small minded or selfish but thinking big earth, Redbird is a space, an idea, in a time and place that we share Now,and we must do what we can for her while we can.

I have been attending the Redbird Powwows at the Moorpark College facility for three years now. I am a non-Native American with a number of American Native friends, many who I have met at these events. The Redbird event is the special project of Corina Roberts, Founder of Redbird. This year's event was especially memorable for me because of an extended and moving tribute to Native American United States military veterans -- men and women. Each veteran had an opportunity to tell their story. I wish everyone could have heard the stories of their service in wartimes -- service from people who are descendants of those who had their birthright taken from them by the government. I continue to learn more and more at each Powwow about various Native American dancing styles, and the spiritual nature of such celebrations that are an integral part of this minority's steadfast commitment to preserve their heritage. I personally find these gatherings spiritual. Belief in the Creator is at the heart of these events. That belief is expressed time and time again in respect for the ground they bless before establishing the dance circle, respect for each other, and a love and openness that is often absent in religious observations in other faiths. It is my hope that other non-Natives get a chance to experience the Redbird Children of Many Colors Powwow and, like me, do what they can to support Redbird to ensure its future. -- Richard Rudman, Santa Paula, CA

I believe in hope and Redbirds gives hope to so many being humanpour humanity, animals and Mother Earth. I am constantly amazed be the depth in the projects that this organization commits to making successful through multiple faceted efforts. Red bird is a huge community giving back to the rights intended for all. I would like to continue to support this organization. I believe in making a difference and seeing change in what they do all around convinces me to follow them in their endeavors and support anyway I can.

I have personally seen the slide show of the recent "Forest Recovery Project" and was really amazed at the information contained in the slide show. To the best of my knowledge this the first time we can actually view reforestation in time lapse photos after a devastating forest fire. The education provided by this project is endless to both the Forest Service and educators in this field. This project could also provide information regarding the role fire plays in this ecosystem.

I have had the opportunity to volunteer and participate both with Redbird's toy drive and ongoing forest recovery project. Corina's passion in her work lends the description; inspirational, ferocious, and triumphant.

Admiration for Redbird extends beyond conviction of purpose, but to the positive effect Corina's spirit has on others. It is the smile on everyone's face as Corina interacts with them which is a testament to that spirit.



My first opportunity to attend one of Corina's forest recovery presentations left me in awe in terms of the story she tells of the forest's miraculous recovery through her photography.



And in regards to the toy drive I had the privilege to attend, the magnitude of the generosity of donations again is a testament to the nature and spirit Corina brings forth.

RedBird PowWow , The Powwow it very inspirational, The location is in an open field, drummers,dancers and the MC's is very traditional. The only thing I would change is that the MC give more information on the different dancers, Many Non-native are in the audience. The arena dicterctor should also stress the blessing of the circle.
