Sunchild First Nation School is located on the Sunchild First Nation, a 52 square kilometre reserve located approximately 40 kilometres northwest of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. The Sunchild First Nation is a Cree speaking Nation and has a registered population of 1,300.
Our students, teachers, and staff are very excited to work with Trickster Theatre in the 2017-18 school year to put on our show on What It Means to be First Nations Inside Confederation.
To host this residency, we need a total of $18,200. We have applied for funding from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. If this is not accepted, we need to cover the cost of the residency. So far, we have committed $4,550 to the total cost and Trickster Theatre has committed to fundraising $9,100.
We need your help to raise the remaining $4,550. Your contribution ensures a fun-filled week of active learning for every student within our school.
We greatly appreciate your help and look forward to sharing our finished work with you!
Full Project Summary
Sunchild School, with the expertise of Trickster Theatre, will centre our arts residency project on the theme “Celebrating the 150th anniversary of Confederation and the role the seven teachings has played in what it means to be First Nations inside confederation”.
The traditional concept of respect and sharing that form the foundation of First Nations way of life are built around the seven natural laws or teachings. Each teaching honours one of the basic virtues intrinsic to a full and healthy life (love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth).
Teachers, elders and artists will help students explore the seven teachings and how they play into what it means to be a First Nation person in the last 150 years.
