Explore Indigenous Culture through the Arts

First Nations Performance is a non-profit arts society that creates opportunities for Indigenous artists. Proudly located on the traditional, unceded territories of the m̓i q̓əq̓aʔt ct (Musqueam), Ḵxwúsem (Squamish) and Qápqúthut (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, Full Circle produces programs and events such as the annual Talking Stick Festival to share history, stories and experiences of the First Nations People through their artistic work.

Come Together
