play

The kids of Wapos Bay love adventure. And their playground is a vast area that’s been home to their Cree ancestors for millennia.  Ten-year-old T-Bear, 9-year-old Talon and 6-year-old Raven star in Wapos Bay, a lighthearted stop-motion animation series about growing up in a remote Cree community. In Wapos Bay, modern life and ancient traditions meet. Hunting and gathering, dog sledding and shimmering northern lights are part of every day but so are video games, TV and cell phones. Guided by elders, extended family and their own insatiable curiosity, the three children learn how to balance traditional ways with newer ones. Their discoveries unfold against the backdrop of northern Saskatchewan’s varied seasons — winter, spring thaw, spring, summer, fall and freeze-up.  As they explore the world around them, the three children acquire some valuable lessons about respect, cooperation, honesty and tolerance. And of course, they also teach the adults a few things.
