Grade 11 Dramatic Arts class presented a piece based on  “The Ballad of Ira Hayes.”                          This song is based on a true story.  Ira Hayes was a U.S. marine war hero who fought in WW2.          Elder Dr. Duke Redbird of TDSB’s Aboriginal Education Centre recommended our drama students share Ira Hayes’s story to our school as it illustrates the sacrifices of North
American Indigenous soldiers and the discrimination they faced and continue to face.
