Our FINAL CONTINENT POSTER for Season 1 is the N. American Continent, as we focus on the rich heritage, spirituality and respect for the earth by Native Americans and First Nation Peoples. I was humbled and blessed to write both of these stories that depict the Indigenous people of the continent where I live.
Episode 2, Way & Two Wolves, is from the Cherokee Nation. Waya is learning to be a warrior of his people, but he is troubled, rebellious and arrogant. He follows the wrong friends in his life and does not think of the consequences. But then, Waya is faced with a life-changing decision to protect his twin sister and an endangered white wolf pup – or go with his friend. In the end, his grandfather’s spirit comes to him with a message… it is time for him to make a choice.
Episode 7, Namid & Star Dancing, the Metis Nation. Ami is tragically left an orphan and must live in an unfamiliar place with strangers, her Metis family in Canada. But her journey through darkness turns into a brilliant light when she meets her Indigenous great-grandmother. The elder teaches her about her People and assures Ami she is stronger than she thinks, for everything on her path has meaning no matter how joyful or how hard it is.
I hope you have enjoyed this journey through the Moon Drake Continents for Season 1! We believe the stories are exquisite and powerful because they come from a heartfelt mission – indeed, the people involved in this project believe the world is destined to be a better place if we do our part.
Our fourth poster for Season 1 is for the Australian Continent. It was such a blessing to focus on this continent with seasoned screenwriter and author, Martin Nuza. Each of these children’s stories depict dynamic characters and harrowing adventures through the intriguing cultures of Tasmania and New Zealand.
Episode 4, Koen & the Wandjina, by Martin Nuza, takes us on a spiritual journey into an ancient wilderness in Tasmania. It is a mystical adventure filled with Indigenous rituals and traditions. And in the end, when faced with great tragedy, our Earth Hero, Koen, must make a life-changing decision by rising to a place he’s never been before.
Episode 12, Ihaka’s Rainbow of the Sea. In this New Zealand episode, I address a debilitating, human conflict caused by an accident, which threatens Ihaka’s dream of one day helping the blue whale. But our discouraged character is ultimately lifted-up by his friends, and he reaches to a higher place. A place that changes everything and everyone.
