This year, we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Talking Stick Festival virtually! Although COVID regulations prevent us from hosting events and gatherings live, we can still showcase our performances and event online. We hope you will join us in the celebration from the comfort of your home throughout the year!

If you require any assistance, please contact us at http://m.me/talkingstickfest (live support — preferred method) or support@fullcircle.ca. If you didn't catch the show during our season 1 period, you can still watch some of the key highlights here. See the section below called Available to Watch and click on the video to watch. Enjoy and don't forget to share your experience on social media.
