The Talking Stick Festival’s opening gala is an evening of great entertainment and celebration!
Come gather with us at the Wax hoks en Shqalawin (Open Your Hearts) to sample a selected showcase of 2020 festival performers while enjoying a buffet dinner.
This year’s gala performances feature the dynamic V’ni Dansi, a Vancouver-based company that performs traditional and contemporary Métis jigging and Indigenous contemporary dance, and M’Girl’s talented ensemble of Indigenous women whose hand drum songs blend with potent harmonies into a contemporary gospel style. Their songs have roots in the Métis, Cree, Anishnaabe, Saulteaux, and the Tahltan/Tlingit traditions.
Join in and celebrate the launch of the 19th year of Western Canada’s premiere Indigenous Arts festival!
