The Capitol Theatre presents its 6th annual INDIGENOUS CULTURAL CELEBRATION:

As a cultural cornerstone in Nelson, the Capitol Theatre has played an integral role in fostering culture and community engagement through its programming for the last 30 years. During this time, the theatre has embarked on multiple collaborations and more recently has specifically engaged with the community through projects that embrace inclusivity, artistic expression and the subject of reconciliation.

Each year the Indigenous Cultural Celebration event provides the opportunity for local and regional Indigenous dancers, storytellers and musicians to participate in this event and extends an invitation to the community at large to engage in the conversation of reconciliation, to show respect to all Indigenous people throughout the region and to support the acknowledgement of traditional territories in this area.

Tony Louie The Sinixt singer songwriter from Inchelium, WA. is an international, award-winning performance artist and 2019 awards recipient of an Native American Music Award for “Best Rap/Hip Hop Video”. His soulful sound has a way of grounding even the most restless of spirits. Tony is a special guest performer as part of the Capitol Theatre's 6th annual Indigenous Cultural Celebration. Join us for this hour-long song and story-telling performance.
