Raven’s Quest features first-person stories told by Indigenous children from across the country. The series visits different political and physical regions in Canada, including: the lush landscape of British Columbia to visit a girl from the Haida Nation who demonstrates how to make a cedar bark basket; the city of Ottawa, where an Inuit girl explains the importance of throat singing; and Nova Scotia where a boy who is Mi’kmaq shares his passion for traditional dancing.

The series introduces children to the diversity of Indigenous communities, showing the different languages, territories, and traditions of each nation. Most importantly, we see that even though the lives of Indigenous children are similar to other Canadian children, their lives on and off reserves are enriched by their cultural traditions and knowledge. Today, when children learn about residential schools and some of the hardships on reserves, they may be left with negative stereotypes of the viability of Indigenous communitoes. For this reason, this series is very important to counter this looming typecast by presenting the lives of Indigneous communities and children in a positive light with an age-appropriate format.
