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.

Animals hold knowledge and have their own ways of being, raising families and sustaining eco-systems. Plus they are part of our cultural understandings and we are fortunate they provide humans food, clothing, shelter and medicines. Elder Iggy George from Tsleil-Waututh Nation explains why we must respect animals and their environment and habitat, including how to respectfully hunt for food. Nathaniel Arcand gives a shout out to the buffaloes and we meet Emily Missyabit McAuley, a biologist, who took her love for the outdoors and merged it with Indigenous Science. In our animation story, Dr. Winona asks how we must find new ways to build homes and communities that don't destroy habitat, while Kai constructs a colourful bee habitat. Commander John Herrington shares how the wolves were restored to Yellowstone National Park, after being over-hunted decades ago, effecting the entire local eco-system.
