Stories of the North
Now airing on Citytv saskatchewan
“Stories of the North” has been renewed for a second season on Citytv Saskatchewan and returned to production in August. Season 2 will premiere in early 2024.
“Stories of the North” is a children’s educational program that airs on Citytv Saskatchewan. It features “Moshom” (played by Morris Cook) and his granddaughters “Natanis” and “Sekwan” (played by Claire Walker and Mya Hoskins-Fiddler) and their life in Saskatchewan’s north. Set in Moshom’s cabin, he tells stories, in animated sequences, about his childhood, and teaching them a new word in Cree after each story line. In each episode Natanis and Sekwan end up learning 10 new words in Cree and a little bit more about their grandfather’s life as a child.
Season 1 was a finalist in the Children’s Category of the 2023 Yorkton Film Festival and is nominated for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival in Santa Fe.
Campfire Stories works in the spirit of truth and reconciliation, acknowledging Saskatchewan as the traditional territory of First Nations and Métis People.
Who We Are
we're story tellers!
Kyle and Allia both benefitted from some amazing mentors as they developed a vision for Campfire Stories. Local cinematographers, Ian Rogers and George Hupka have given much of their time on set (and still do) to help share their knowledge. At Campfire Stories, we are working to continue this tradition by hiring up and coming artists and giving them a chance to practice and refine their skills.
Our son, Aidan, decided to join the industry right out of high school and has made a niche for himself in the local industry as a DIT and jack of all trades.
