With a desire to appeal to Indigenous and non-Indigenous attendees alike, the Talking Stick Festival’s programming focuses on the diversity of Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre, Music, Pow Wow, and Film in both traditional and contemporary formats. This year's theme is Schayilhen (S-ch-eye-yay-lh-un), which translates literally to "Salmon going up.” As a registered non-profit Society, Full Circle’s Talking Stick Festival began as a way to showcase and celebrate Indigenous art and performance to a wider audience. It is the premiere, multi-disciplinary Indigenous arts festival in North America.
