Science Questers explore the importance of rivers, their ecosystems and how to protect them. Anostin, Willem and Charlie have fun demonstrating how a watershed works. And we meet Sto:lo Historian Sonny McHalsie who educates us about the science behind drying salmon by the river.

COYOTE'S CRAZY SMART SCIENCE SHOW (Coyote Science) is a visually stunning, award-winning adventures-in-science series designed for elementary students. Drawing on wisdom from pioneers in Indigenous education, including Dr. Leroy Little Bear, Amethyst First Rider, and Dr. Lorna Williams, Coyote Science bridges the worlds of Indigenous and Western science, teaching kids scientific concepts through discussions with Indigenous scientists, storytelling, animation, music, and experiments.

BIO: Created by Loretta Todd, a Métis–Cree filmmaker who was one of the first Indigenous women to pursue film studies at Simon Fraser University in BC. Loretta is an amateur science geek who always wanted to inspire Indigenous children and youth to learn more about science, especially Indigenous science. Using her creative skills as a creative, L. S. Todd is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning filmmaker known for powerful, visual storytelling and cultural leadership.

Science Questers explore the importance of rivers, their ecosystems and how to protect them. We meet Ernie Victor from Cheam First Nation who explains how the Cheam watershed works and how we must work as a community to protect ecosystems. Canoe Builder Keith Point shares his knowledge on the different designs of Sto:lo canoes and their purpose. Where and how to dry salmon is shared by Sto:lo Historian Sonny McHalsie, while Carrielynn Victor reminds Science Questers to be mindful of rivers and watersheds. The unfortunate effects of littering on a river’s living beings are felt by Sturgeon Steve in our animation story, while Anostin and his cousins have fun learning about how a watershed works. Meeting with Commander John Herrington we find out about how dams work and how they have both good advantages and yet how large scale dams can devastate habitat, ecosystems and cultural practices.
