The Indigenous Arts Festival  (IAF) is an annual celebration of traditional and contemporary Indigenous music, dance, theatre, storytelling, film, crafts and culinary experiences. IAF provides a gathering place to acknowledge, and share in the rich and diverse arts, culture and heritage of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples of Canada and Indigenous communities around the world. The Festival is a series of educational experiences that create shared narratives between peoples of all walks of life. The Indigenous worldview sees the whole person as connected to the land. The Festival creates a forum for non-indigenous people to acknowledge, understand and appreciate Indigenous knowledge and ways of being. That understanding fills a local need for truth and reconciliation.
