Wapos Bay: Journey Through Fear (Cree Version)

Wapos Bay: Journey Through Fear (Cree Version)

In episode 2 from the Wapos Bay series, Aboriginal Day festivities are getting underway, but there's even more cause for excitement in Wapos Bay. T-Bear unexpectedly spends the night in the fire tower after he climbs up and is too afraid to come down. Jacob goes up to get his son and realizes he's scared too. In an amusing twist, the story is reported as a political protest on TV. Meanwhile, Raven doesn't want to go fishing with her mother, Sarah, because she's frightened of the river. Sarah helps her daughter feel at ease in open water, one step at a time. Through their respective experiences, both Raven and T-Bear discover how important honesty, patience and courage are, especially when you're scared.

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.
