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.
