The REdpath Movement
RedPath is a lifestyle committed to living a life of sobriety, respect, friendship, love, and empowerment. It is a journey committed to healing our past, and moving forward towards reaching our highest potential. A part of walking the RedPath is living a healthy lifestyle free of drugs and alcohol, which James and Marika are proud to say they have done for many years. RedPath performances and empowerment programs powerfully blend Indigenous culture and modern flow arts, using it to connect with and inspire spectators around the world.
