Seabird Island - Ep 5: Host Steve Sxwithul'txw takes on some unusual challenges when he visits Seabird Island in British Columbia. The games that are integrated into the school programs are ones that have been traditionally played for hundreds of years. Knobbies (a kind of bolo game) traditionally could only be played by women. But this time, an exception is made for Steve. All of the kids rally behind him in this daily celebration of aboriginal culture.
