Teepee Time is an engaging animated preschool series following a curious little tipi as he explores the world around him. For Teepee, every experience involves learning something new, with lots of fun and adventure along the way!
Teepee Plays the Drum
In this episode, Teepee plays a drum for the very first time. Back at home, he dances to a song about a little tipi who loves to play the drum, then listens to a story about a magic drum.
This episode will be followed by a short Teepee Toc Mi’kmaq language lesson.
Teepee Learns to Dance
In this episode, Teepee learns the hoop dance at a pow wow. Before taking a nap, he bops to a hoop-dance song, and listens to a story about a magic buffalo dance.
Teepee Plays the Drum and Teepee Learns to Dance will be presented at CINÉ+ in June, in both English and French.
