Lac La Ronge Indian Band


From 2011-2016, Acting Out  partnered with Lac La Ronge Indian Band (LLRIB) which is located 241 km north of Prince Albert in north-central Saskatchewan. A cool fact that LLRIB is the largest First Nation in Saskatchewan and one of the 10 largest in Canada.

The LLRIB education board agreed to partner with the Acting Out! But In A Good Way research project with the Senator Myles Venne School (formerly called Kitsaki School).

The LLRIB vision consists of four goals: culture, values, skills and pride. Their educational activities reflects the Woodland Cree culture and language integrates into the provincial curricula to provide the educational foundation from which the individual student can learn to live successfully and happily in any society.
