Talking Stick Festival (February 19 - March 2)
The Talking Stick Festival provides workshops in schools.
The series consist of storytelling, performing and visual arts workshops and classes programmed directly into schools and community centres in areas where many members of the Aboriginal community reside
Workshops in Schools is a series of workshops designed under the guidelines of the Aboriginal Enhancement Agreement.
Stories and art practices of Aboriginal culture have enormous depth and richness with teachings as relevant today as they were so many years ago. The purpose of this program is to preserve the language, culture and art forms of Aboriginal people.
All of our interactive cultural workshops are specially designed for either children and youth of all ages to learn and discover aboriginal culture in a lively and creative environment.
