As the sound of a lone drum filled the air symbolizing the heartbeat of Mother Earth, members of The Redhawk Native American Arts Council performed some traditional dances at the 103rd Precinct’s Night Out Against Crime event at Rufus King Park in Jamaica on Tuesday.
The show by the RNAAC members, who were dressed in vibrant and distinctive garb, was the highlight of the evening’s festivities for many attendees.
The symbolic movements, meant in some instances to conjure images of peace, love and respect, went well with the evening’s anti-crime message.
