Searching for the Trickster in the Classroom
Feb 10 – 22, 2009
Twenty three classrooms were visited in the Manitoulin Island – North Shore area. Ten elementary and secondary schools received a 40 minute presentation to introduce the festival theme Searching for the Trickster in the 21st Century, and to promote participation in the various creative competitions offered by the festival. Two traditional Nanabush stories were shared at each of the presentations.
The promotional tour was conducted by Joe Osawabine, Sunny Osawabine, Barry Beaver, Lottie Fox, Ovide Bighetty, and Linda Colombe.
