In episode 3 from the Wapos Bay series, Talon, Raven and T-Bear learn what can happen when they forget to respect tradition. Raven can't resist whistling at the glimmering northern lights even though she's been warned not to. And T-Bear breaks with an age-old ritual by neglecting to offer tobacco ties before picking sweet grass for the elders. All 3 children discover that their careless behaviour may be the source of the community's recent small misfortunes. With help from grandfather Mushom and a wise elder, they take part in a traditional ceremony that puts things right.
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.
