Episode 1A - Wind and Water:
On one of the hottest days of the year, Cree elder Louis asks Randy to ensure everyone has nipiy (water). Randy and his friend Katie try to figure out what people may need on a hot day. They end up making paper accordion fans so people can fan themselves with a cool breeze or wind (thôtin). Aboriginal people make beautiful fans from feathers which are used in dances and ceremonies.
Episode 1B - Scary Garden:
Katie's mom needs kistikâcikana (seeds) for her garden. Louis thinks maybe they are missing a scarecrow for her garden. Katie and Louis gather fabric, wood and hay to build a scarecrow. Despite the mistake, the scarecrow is an important feature of the garden. In the past, some aboriginal people had community members whose job was to scare crows away from the corn fields.
