Tiga Talk Season II- IV Cree
Kimmie and Jason have a secret - whenever all the adults leave the room, their plush toy wolf Tiga comes to life to teach the kids all the stories, sounds and languages he has learned from their Kokum. Kokum spends her days taking Tiga along on her visits to First Nations Reserves in British Columbia, exploring aboriginal language and culture with young children and Elders. Every evening - in the children's quiet time before bed - Tiga comes to life to play with, sing and teach Kimmie and Jason and all the children watching them on TV. He recounts his adventures of the day and shares the stories, sounds and new languages he has learned. But every time Kokum (or any other adult) is around, Tiga turns back into a stuffed toy. Only Kimmie, Jason and the children watching at home are in on the secret.
