The Heartbeat Music Project offers music education for Navajo (Diné) K-12 students living on the Navajo Reservation. We cultivate a safe space for our students to thrive and gain confidence in themselves, their abilities, and their local and global potential. We strive to create an atmosphere of cultural exchange in which we acknowledge the impact of past and present colonialism on indigenous peoples; respectfully engaging with Diné music, cultures and customs. Today, Heartbeat operates under the fiscal sponsorship of Roadwork, Inc
— a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1978 with the mission of building multi-racial coalitions through women’s culture.
