The Festival runs October 19 - 22 in Saskatoon. With more than a dozen programs to choose from, there's something for everyone. Take a bite out of a "Bannockdotes" is an evening of wit and humor with some of the festival's writers and comics: Barry Ahenakew, Louise Halfe, Dawn Dumont and Marcel Petit. Or listen to Thomson Highway or Maria Campbell.
Where the word Ânskohk originated
The word Ânskohk was given to us by cree Elder, Mr. Joseph Naytowhow. It is pronounced “ans-cook” and means “passing on the teaching tying one generation to the next or in other translations, passing the story on” in the context of the Festival. (Ânskohk web site)
