series description

The Cree kids of Wapos Bay in northern Saskatchewan love adventure and their playground is a vast area that's been home to their Cree ancestors. Hunting and gathering, dog sledding and shimmering northern lights are part of everyday but so are video games, TV and cell phones. Guided by elders, extended family and their own insatiable curiosity, three children learn how to balance modern life and ancient traditions as their discoveries unfold against the backdrop; winter, spring, summer, and fall. 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.
