Tipi Tales is a 13 part, half-hour children’s puppet series designed to illustrate the seven sacred teachings of Aboriginal spirituality to children by showing the importance of connection between children and their elders, man and his creator, and love of oneself. Four children face basic morality questions, or issues that need to be overcome, with the help and guidance of two grandparents and the legacy of the seven sacred animals that embody each teaching. As the moral dilemma is overcome, the children learn to rely on the values extended by their grandparents to empower themselves when facing obstacles. Tipi Tales can be found on APTN (Aboriginal Peoples Television Network) @ 9:00 AM, Wednesdays.
