Wapos Bay – Get it for your library!

I cannot rave enough about a children’s television series that airs on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) called Wapos Bay. Wapos Bay, a stop-frame claymation series created by Dark Thunder Productions, features the lives of a contemporary Cree family and its friends in the fictional northern Saskatchewan community of Wapos Bay. It is chock full of wonderful teachings, humour, creativity, and very endearing characters. I have laughed and cried while watching this series – a true gem in children’s television – and purchased it for our son.

Each DVD in the series presents the episode in Cree and English, which is excellent given the rapid decline of Aboriginal languages in Canada. The series is also accompanied by a study guide that would be very useful in the classroom.
