The Red Altar Project is about six teenagers who crossed the ocean from China, crashed in the Carmel Bay of California, and began the fishing industry in the Monterey Bay area in 1850. In the face of anti-Chinese legislation, media propaganda with racist caricatures, and outright violence, they persevered with courage and ingenuity in an effort to lay down roots in their volatile new home. Seven generations later, their story is finally being told.

Hector Armienta’s adaptation of the tale, told by a pair of mischievous rabbits, begins with a young coyote named Scrawny who is learning how to read. When his cousin Loco discovers what Scrawny is up to (no decent coyote would ever learn such a thing!), he makes it his mission to set Scrawny on the “right path.” The series of misadventures that follows, all thanks to Loco and his ignorance, only serves to show Scrawny how valuable education truly is.
