WHAT'S ON APTN:
Nehiyawetan combines reality television with educational entertainment to create a live-action, on-location series that follows Aboriginal children (ages 5-7) as they learn to speak Cree in the city. In each episode, the children go on adventures with their Cree teacher. Along the way, they meet interesting people, explore interesting places, sing songs, play games and tell stories. Each adventure gives the children the opportunity to learn and practice the Cree words and phrases of the day. The series reinforces language skills, promotes language retention, offers a Cree perspective of the world and smart choices about living in the city.
