PBS KIDS Characters at the National Museum of the American Indian
June 5, 2019 @ 4:45 pm - 5:30 pm UTC+0Free
The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian hosts PBS KIDS costume characters to celebrate the premiere of MOLLY OF DENALI, the first nationally distributed children’s series to feature a Native American lead character.
MOLLY OF DENALI is about Alaska Native Molly Mabray, a feisty and resourceful 10-year-old Gwich’in/Koyukon/Dena’ina Athabascan girl, who takes viewers ages 4 to 8 along with her on adventures and fosters literacy skills along the way. With an emphasis on family and intergenerational relationships, episodes of MOLLY OF DENALI model Alaska Native values, such as respecting others, sharing what you have and honoring your elders, while showcasing contemporary aspects of rural life, including strong female role models and how technology aids in communication. The show will premiere nationwide July 15, 2019 on PBS stations, the 24/7 PBS KIDS channel and PBS KIDS digital platforms.
