Question Quest

Children have so many questions, and sometimes the journey to the answer is as important as the answer itself. Through puppetry, story and discussion we take your class on an epic quest to discover the question about questions. Join us as we explore a variety of questions and develop the various tools needed to make such an expedition.

Traditional Storytime

Many people love books, but this program will teach you to love listening to stories, too. Share the magic of oral storytelling as we tell our stories, passing them from mind to mind, imagination to imagination, heart to heart. 

History and Hiawatha

Hiawatha is a Mohawk leader who is well-known because of the famous (and famously inaccurate) poem written by Henry Longfellow. We will present the story of Hiawatha as told by his own people, and the history of his part in founding the Iroquois Confederacy - a significant democratic milestone. Students will experience a pre-treaty story which deals with the complex relationships between First Nations people, the land and other nations. We will also discuss how factual history can be overwhelmed by a popular work. 

Kindergarten - Grade 2

All About the Bison

Prior to the near extinction of bison in the 1890s, many First Nations people survived on the prairies in part thanks to the many uses of this large animal. Join us as we connect the vitality of the bison to the everyday lives of Indigenous peoples prior to the arrival of settlers. 

Available all school year.
