Audiences enjoy a wide selection of theatrical productions centering on themes of Indigenous experiences such as Mistatim and Battle of the Birds, which were written, produced and performed by Indigenous talent.
Múyuntstut ta Slúlum (Music)
Showcasing well-known, award winning Indigenous musical performers such as Fara Palmer, Sister Says and many more have graced the festival stage.
Each year, we host a dance series that feature contemporary Indigenous dance programs choreographed by leading Canadian dance artists.
Each year, we kids particularly from throughout the Lower Mainland to submit their best poster art (grades 6 – 12) and the best coloring work (Kindergarten to grade 5).

This comprehensive outreach program reaches hundreds of youth and children per annum from across the province. Offering matinee screenings of feature films followed by talk-backs and conversations with the filmmakers, this projects engages youth, their families and their educators in the sharing of traditional and contemporary Aboriginal cultural practices and history.
