Molly of Denali
Currently broadcasting its third season on PBS KIDS, MOLLY OF DENALI is the first nationally distributed children’s series in the U.S. to feature an Alaska Native lead character. It follows the adventures of Molly Mabray, a curious and resourceful 10-year-old Alaska Native girl who helps her parents run the Denali Trading Post in the village of Qyah.
Molly’s dog Suki and her friends Tooey and Trini often join in on the fun. Molly not only vlogs about her adventures, but she also uses resources like books, maps, field guides, and local experts to encourage curiosity, learn about her environment, and help in her community.
Produced by GBH Kids, MOLLY OF DENALI is designed to help kids ages 4-8 develop knowledge and skills for interacting with informational texts through video content, interactive games, and real-world activities.
MOLLY OF DENALI is the first PBS KIDS’ series to be grounded in the Alaska Native and Native American experience. GBH has been honored to develop the series with an amazing team of Indigenous advisors, producers, language consultants, writers, actors and artists. As part of this development partnership, GBH recognizes the significant contribution of Indigenous knowledge that has been made to the production, and it is committed to incorporating these elements into the production in a respectful and appropriate manner. GBH acknowledges that it does not own copyright to Indigenous knowledge.
