"Meticulously researched, this play brings Alex Decoteau-the man, his life, his death-before us. A man of ability, ambition, and integrity ... a true warrior ... ultimately sacrificed on the altar of futile tactics." Major (Retired) David Haas, CD, rmc Inspired by the life of Alex Decoteau, this moving one-act play tells the tale of a Cree hero. Canada's 1st aboriginal police officer, a champion runner and popular figure, Decoteau raced for Canada at the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm, fought for Canada in World War I and was killed, at 29, in the 1917 Battle of Passchendaele. The book includes an historical note, archival photographs, and a fascinating introduction to the play and the Alex Decoteau Run, which introduced Edmonton schoolchildren to this aboriginal role model. Attention teachers: Appropriate for Grades 5 and up (9 years and older).
