Wapos Bay: The Elements

Top of page

In The Elements, the survival skills of Talon, T-Bear, Raven and Mushom are tested by an unexpected storm.

The children are helping Mushom (grandfather) set up a cultural camp so young people can learn traditional ways. Bad weather hits and the radio, generator and ATV break down. Mushom leaves the camp for help but has an accident along the way.

Left alone, the children have several mishaps - including accidentally blowing up their ATV - and abandon camp.

The family makes it home safely, but their journey to Elders Island teaches the children that taking shortcuts at any age is best avoided. T-Bear learns that his knowledge of electronics can come in handy in any situation.

Wapos Bay is a light-hearted stop-motion animation series about the adventures of three Cree children living in remote northern Saskatchewan. Guided by elders, extended family and their own insatiable curiosity, T-Bear, Talon and Raven learn how to balance traditional ways with newer ones. Dennis and Melanie Jackson created this charming award-winning series.
