ETFO and Spirit Horse

Student art work – Valley View P.S.

In 2010 and 2015, ETFO completed an Arts professional development initiative in southern and northern Ontario in collaboration with the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) to support the Ministry’s Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy and release of the revised Arts curriculum.

The project was built around the play Spirit Horse, adapted by First Nations playwright, Drew Hayden-Taylor. The tour reached over 35,000 students in elementary schools as well as First Nations schools. Approximately 900 teachers received face-to-face and online professional development/learning on Indigenous Peoples and the content addressed in the Spirit Horse play.
