New Red Order (NRO) is a “public secret society” collaborating with self-described “informants,to interrogate individual and collective desires for indigeneity. Core contributors are Adam Khalil (Ojibway), Zack Khalil (Ojibway), and Jackson Polys (Tlingit).

This two-year residency will provide production support for the NRO’s forthcoming work Never Settle, an artwork taking the form of a promotional initiation video that lures potential inductees with promises of decolonization and settler remediation. The NRO also plans to work within departments at Ohio State to further its exploration of digital image manipulation, and it will continue to deepen the group’s ongoing study of Ohio’s Earthworks.
