A greedy orca whale is eating all the fish in the village. Amy and her friends Theodore and Casey go on an adventure to stop the whale from devouring the entire sea! One the way, they are saved by the mythical Thunderbird who flies them high in the skies! The lesson Thunderbird and Orca teach the children is that learning to share may be the best way they can all live in harmony. In addition, short segments teach viewers about the thunderbird who possesses great power and strength; the Cowichan people; and two original songs from Kimmy Alexander and Douglas Proulx.
Amy’s Mythic Mornings is a fun and innovative animated series for kids 5-8 that teaches problem solving and moral guidance through traditional knowledge from Indigenous storytelling. Six-year-old Amy and her friends Theodore and Casey bring the lessons to life when they imagine themselves in the rich stories told by Amy’s Grandmother. Each episode contains a series of lessons for children to learn, as well as sing-a-longs, and a collection of original songs composed and sung by Kimmy Alexander and Douglas Proulx.
