IPTV presents Molly of Denali and a new PBS KIDS schedule

Today Iowa Public Television announced that a new animated social studies series, Molly of Denali, is premiering Monday, July 15 at 7:30 a.m. on IPTV.1.

The first nationally distributed children’s series to feature a Native American lead character, Molly of Denali is about Alaska Native Molly Mabray, a feisty and resourceful 10-year-old Gwich’in/Koyukon/Dena’ina Athabascan girl. Molly helps her mom and dad run the Denali Trading Post, a general store, bunkhouse and transport hub in the fictional village of Qyah, Alaska. Each episode follows Molly, her dog Suki and her friends Tooey and Trini on their daily adventures in Alaska, from fishing to building snow forts to delivering a camera to friends on a volcano via dog sled.

The series 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. In each episode, Molly’s life and adventures are enhanced, illuminated and broadened by using and creating a variety of informational texts, including books, online resources, field guides, historical archives, indigenous knowledge from elders, maps, charts, posters, photos and more. Molly also shares the information that she gathers through a vlog, offering short-form videos in which she shares aspects of her life in Alaska with kids in the lower 48 states and around the world.

To accommodate the addition of Molly of Denali, new PBS KIDS schedules will also debut on Monday, July 15. The new weekday schedule for IPTV.1 and daily schedule for IPTV KIDS.2 can be seen below.
