Safe Harbors NYC is an arts initiative that focuses on the development and production of Indigenous Performing Arts in NYC.

About Us

We seek to build an understanding of Native American methodologies in performance that in turn will function as a cultural liaison to non-Native theatre artists in the City. The more successful we are in engaging these populations, the closer we hope to be to creating truly cross-cultural lines of communication. 

Our Mission

Safe Harbors focuses on the development and production of Native Theater and Performing Arts in New York City within the broader American theater; we combat stereotypes and support vibrant Native communities. We develop ongoing dialogue with Policymakers about the approach to cultural and socioeconomic issues using Theatrical performances, Performing Arts, Native Cultural Consultancy, panel discussions, and Cultural Events.
