RED FEATHER WOMAN
Rose Red Elk is an international performing arts entertainer, known by her Native American traditional and stage name Red Feather Woman. She is an accomplished storyteller, singer, songwriter and author from the Fort Peck Reservation in Poplar, Montana, and an enrolled member of the Sioux/Assiniboine Tribes. Red Feather Woman is an award winning recording artist. Her albums are a unique blend of oral traditional spoken word weaving the oral traditions of Native American stories with themed songs.
Red Feather Woman has toured extensively throughout the US and abroad. Sponsored by the US State Department, she has performed in Malta, Turkey and Pakistan for audiences numbering in the thousands, earning national media coverage in Pakistan. As a storyteller/musician, blending tales of hope and spiritual survival, Red Feather Woman proved to be a true ambassador of peace and unity throughout eight cities in Turkey and four provinces of Pakistan, including the capital Islamabad.
Her most important mission is the preservation of her people’s ancient culture and art form. She entertains as well as teaches audiences the importance of Mother Earth and to reflect on their personal heritage.
Red Feather Woman’s latest project is her first comic book series "Empowerment $aga" published by the Department of Interior and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The comic series has six stories, with the central theme of financial management, and its target audience is youth on reservations throughout the US. The characters of shape shifters are utilized to teach teenagers important lessons and experiences about fiscal responsibility. Upon publication, the comic books will be available for viewing on her web site.
To date Red Feather Woman has three CDs, all as an independent artist, and one short story book entitled “Medicine Stories”. Rose Red Elk resides in Berthoud, Colorado.
