A talking wolf is taking over B.C., and only children can hear it.

The second season of Tiga Talk! began in October on APTN. The show features a puppet wolf, who only chats with kids when adults are not listening.

Producer, Co-Writer, and Actor Irene Green has roots in the North Peace – she worked as a Early Childhood Educator/coordinator for the Blueberry River First Nations and was pre-school teacher at the Child Development Centre in Fort St. John.

In Tiga Talk!, Green acts as ‘Kokum’, a grandmother and a friend of Tiga.

Green says the show incorperates aboriginal traditions and culture, and has been filmed in locations like the Saulteau First Nations Reserve and the Blueberry First Nations Reserve.

Executive Producer, Co-Writer, and Director Hilary Pryor met Green on the Blueberry Reserve, and the two quickly became friends.

With her television background, Pryor approached Green with the idea of developing a children’s show. The pair then began working on the Pilot project that was aired last year.

Pryor says since then, the show has taken off and is gaining popularity in the Yukon and B.C.
