Who are we:
Indigenous Enterprise is a Native American dance troupe consisting of champion dancers from Canada and the United States. Our mission is to share the culture of Indigenous people and increase the understanding of Native identity through film, fashion, & dance. We have toured internationally and domestically since 2015. Indigenous Enterprise has produced five shows in Australia a total of since 2017 for various organizations. We are also the first Indigenous company to perform capacity sized shows at the Sydney Opera House in 2018 & 2019. In 2016 we collaborated and performed with the Black Eyed Peas for a music video and live concert. That production went on to win an award at the 2017 MTV VMA’s for the song “Stand-N-Rock”. In 2018 we won a film award for our documentary “Indigenous Enterprise'' at the international Chandler Film Festival. We performed in a sold out show at the Scotiabank arena in Toronto, Canada for the Rotary International conference in June 2018. In 2020 we made history by being selected to be the first Indigenous people to perform on Season 4 of NBC’s World of Dance with Jennifer Lopez. We were called upon by filmmaker and choreographer Kenny Ortega to participate in and bring Indigenous representation to the 2021 “Virtual Parade” of the Presidential Inauguration of Joe Biden. Indigenous Enterprise was also featured in “The New York Times” on New Years day of 2021 with the Joyce Theater company.
At Indigenous Enterprise we believe in what we call the three P’s. First, “Preservation”, which we pursue through teaching. Next, “Performance” of traditional dance and song. Finally, “Progression” we understand that culture changes with its people and that we as young Indigenous entrepreneurs of America, are the pioneers of this cultural movement. Identity is important in maintaining any relevance to growing and developing into strong well-minded leaders. Through a healthy and active lifestyle, this provides each individual with the opportunity to dictate their own course of action and achieve personal success.
