Talking Stick Festival 2018

As a registered non-profit Society, Full Circles Talking Stick Festival, now in its 17th year, began as a way to showcase and celebrate Indigenous art and performance to a wider audience. From its humble beginnings, this unique and exciting event has grown into a full 2-week Festival held annually in February at locations across Vancouver. Now attracting over 18,000 attendees each year and still growing, we are noted as being the premier, multi-disciplinary Indigenous arts festival in North America. With a desire to appeal to Indigenous and non-Indigenous attendees alike, our programming focuses on the diversity of Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre, Music, Pow Wow and Film in both traditional and contemporary formats. This year's #TSF2018 theme is Schayilhen (S-ch-eye-yay-lh-un), which translates literally to "Salmon going up". Figuratively, it means salmon going up the stream to spawn and to sacrifice them for us to eat. We welcome you to join our circle and look forward to having you come along on our cultural journey for 2018. Stay up to date and be apart of our circle on social media.
