SATURDAY MARCH 16, 2019 – 5:45PM
In this first episode from the Wapos Bay series, Talon and his cousin T-Bear play on the same hockey team, but their relationship becomes strained when they both try to win the attention of Melanie, a girl on an opposing team. Meanwhile, Raven is having a little too much fun and not helping her grandmother prepare the Kohkum/Granddaughter bannock competition at the Festival. Frustrated by waiting for her granddaughter to help out, Kohkum quits preparing for the contest. The 3 children acquire some valuable lessons with the help of Kohkum and Mushom, Raven’s grandfather. T-Bear learns how to be a team player, and Raven is determined to compete in the contest.
Wapos Bay is a Gemini Award-winning stop-motion animation series that follows the adventures of 3 kids from a Cree community in northern Saskatchewan, created by Dennis and Melanie Jackson.
“I was inspired from the stories that my mom told me about my grandpa raising 22 kids on trap lines,” says Dennis Jackson. “My inspiration has always been from my mother, all of my relations up in Sandy Bay, particularly my Moshum and Kokum, their life is just inspiring to me.”
