What It Means to be First Nations Inside Confederation


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.

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.


  • 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.
