Our mission is to raise the collective consciousness through the practice and preservation of Indigenous teachings, spirituality, and holistic traditions.

OUR STORY

For millennia, native communities have ensured a harmonious life in the Americas, which has resulted in the development of holistic knowledge systems that serve as a river of knowledge into physical and spiritual transformation.

This includes time-tested awareness of how to mitigate volatile climates while living in balance with Nature and Self.

As we experience the early stages of a climate crisis, exacerbated by human activity amidst a global pandemic, this knowledge is not only threatened, but is now needed more than ever.

Red Road Journey builds a bridge that connects these ancestral systems of knowledge to modern society, in an effort to tap into our greatest strength as tribal people: our tradition, to bring much-needed healing to our current and future generations.

WHAT WE DO

Red Road Journey is a native-run nonprofit organization based in Arizona, founded upon the principle of conscious tourism.

This means placing tourism in the hands of the tribal nations, while revitalizing traditions that teach us to heal through ancient modalities.

Our team partners with native communities, starting in Arizona, to develop wellness programming and experiences that are founded upon the sacred virtues of the Red Road: respect for ourselves, our community and Mother Earth.

Circular in nature, our 'business' model encourages a regenerative economy that places the needs of tribal people at the center.  All projects we undertake ensure net profits are reinvested back into the community through our Foundation initiatives.

OUR HOME

We are currently developing an inter-tribal wellness campus, Red Road Project, located just outside Sedona, Arizona, 1.5 hours drive north of Phoenix.

This region, known as Yavapai County, carries profound connection for many tribal nations, and is even the place of emergence for the Yavapai-Apache.

A cornerstone objective of Red Road Journey, as an organization, foundation and wellness space, is to reclaim the ancestral and historical narrative of Yavapai County and the Greater Sedona area, in honor of our ancestors who make this land sacred.

Guests of Red Road Project will only be asked to pay what they can, in an effort to make our space available to anyone, regardless of financial status or privilege.

The renditions below offer a glimpse into the design concept of Red Road Project: a world-class restorative oasis that bridges ancient ingenuity with modern pragmatism, a testament to the timeless culture and tradition of the First Nations from this area.

FOUNDATION

Net profits generated from Red Road Project will be directed to our nonprofit foundation and its following initiatives aimed at restoring health and community to tribal nations throughout Arizona:

"We should acknowledge our strengths (because they've always been there lying dormant), and make a resolve to rekindle all that we forgot, what was, what could be, in healing our communities"
