Indigenous Enterprise is a Native American dance troupe based in Phoenix, Ariz., consisting of champion dancers from Canada and the United States. Their mission is to share the culture of Indigenous people and increase the understanding of Native identity through film, fashion, and dance. The company was established in 2015 with the goal of sharing the positive aspects of indigenous culture through film, fashion, and dance.

Since their founding, Indigenous Enterprise has become one of the most dynamic and exciting cultural companies in the world. Their performances have captivated audiences at some of the most iconic venues and events, including the Super Bowl, Sydney Opera House, Joyce Theater, and the 2020 Presidential Inauguration. They have received critical acclaim from publications such as the New York Times and Vogue Magazine for their captivating performances and stunning visual artistry.

In 2016, they collaborated and performed with the Black Eyed Peas for a music video and live concert. That production went on to win a 2017 MTV Video Music Award for the song “Stand-N-Rock”. In 2018, they won a film award for the documentary Indigenous Enterprise at the international Chandler Film Festival. They performed in a sold-out show at the Scotiabank arena in Toronto, Canada for the Rotary International conference in June 2018. In 2020, they made history by being selected as the first Indigenous people to perform on Season 4 of NBC’s World of Dance with Jennifer Lopez.

In addition to their dance performances, Indigenous Enterprise has also made a name for itself in the fashion world, with a successful clothing line that showcases the beauty and richness of Native American culture. Their unique designs have gained a loyal following of fans who appreciate their unique blend of tradition and contemporary fashion.

Indigenous Enterprise is also a film production company, creating stunning visual storytelling for clients such as the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Phoenix Suns. Their creative vision has been showcased in music videos, commercials, and promotional content. The company is currently in development on a television show that promises to bring their unique perspective and creative vision to a wider audience.

Through their work, Indigenous Enterprise is dedicated to preserving and promoting indigenous culture in a positive and inspiring way.
