Red Star International is an Indigenous-led non-profit organization dedicated to building connections with our relatives. We connect Indigenous communities to expand mindsets and evolve practices to realize a collective vision of health and wellness.
We create opportunities to connect, build relationships and generate new ideas about what is possible.
We believe in the power of Indigenous worldviews, values and relationships to heal and transform systems.
We transcend international boundaries to connect Indigenous communities in meaningful exchange.
Behind the Name ‘Red Star’
When we incorporate red star knowledge into our work, we are living in relationship with our environment, applying knowledge to make good decisions and preparing ourselves for the future. Red stars are found in various Indigenous star knowledge systems as navigational tools used to determine where you are in relation to where you want to go, and to forecast what lies just beyond the horizon. As they shine through the atmosphere, red stars tell us of seasonal changes, weather patterns, when to plant and when to harvest. Red Star International looks to red star knowledge to guide its work to enhance overall well-being for future generations.
