Dear Redhawk Supporters,
Redhawk has hosted this event since July of 1994 at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn’s Gateway National Park. For the first years we partnered with the National Park Services but more recently the Aviator Events center took over the grounds for the event. Over the years the once beautiful grass field has been reduced to a dirt mound, making it unsafe for our visitors and participants. This year Aviator informed us that to host the event they will be charging us $10,000 in rental fees. The amount along with the conditions of the grounds, were deemed unacceptable for the Arts Council.
We are currently trying our best to bring this event back to Brooklyn in 2017. Our most recent effort has been a meeting with the Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams . The pow wow has had a wonderful history in Brooklyn, and we wish to continue bringing this event to serve our community. Yet for now the two decade old tradition has sadly come to an end in Brooklyn. We truly appreciate your support and participation at our event throughout the years. We hope to bring you news of continuing the tradition of our pow wow next year.
