FNMI Legends, History, and Current Issues


A.L. Horton is a rural, public, elementary school (K-6), located in Vegreville, Alberta.  We currently have a population of around 385 students.  A.L. Horton serves a large number of ESL (English as a Second Language) and self-identified First Nations students.

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 FNMI Legends, History, and Current Issues.

We greatly appreciate your help and look forward to sharing our finished work with you!

  • Full Project Summary

    A.L. Horton School will focus on FNMI legends, history, and current issues, while celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday.

    Our younger students will focus on the stories that give structure to First Nations culture.

    Our middle-school students will look at historical relationships of First Nations people with settlers.

    Our older students will examine contemporary issues that First Nations people face, such as career development, access to resources, and mental health.

  • Project Outcome

    Exploring this topic will give all students a look into the past and present issues that First Nations people face. It will also give them the chance to celebrate the culture of their community.


  • How to create projects

    Only a school site admin can set up new projects. Ask you teacher to get help in setting up a project page. Once set up you can write blog articles to support your project. 

    New Projects can be of many types: an event, a take action project, a study, or a Trickster Residency.

  • What is Trickster Theatre

    Trickster Theatre hosts weeklong residencies in Alberta schools. We help create an original show with up to 500 actors - on any theme. We provide the lights, curtains, sounds, costumes, and more!
