These three events are FREE because accessibility to the arts is vital to the continuance of the arts, but we could not do any of this without our sponsors and support from community members like You. As a 501c3 Native nonprofit arts organization, donations make up a tremendous part of the continued development and effort of producing the annual One Heart Native Arts and Film Festival. We appreciate any donation you are able to provide. It is your donations that make One Heart possible.


The mission of One Heart Native Arts & Film Festival is to share and showcase innovative, compelling, and empowering stories from Native perspectives through film, art, and music, celebrating the diversity and vitality of contemporary Native culture in our community today.

Ticket Cost: Free
