Molly of Denali, a new PBS Kids series, follows the adventures of feisty and resourceful 10-year-old Alaska native Molly Mabray. Kids 4 to 8 can join Molly, her dog Suki, and friends Tooey and Trini on their adventures in epically beautiful Alaska. Molly of Denali is the first U.S. nationally distributed children’s series to feature a Native American lead character.

Each episode is grounded in kid-relatable issues – meeting new people, getting from one place to another, solving a problem, or mastering a skill. Each episode follows Molly, her friends and family through daily life and adventures in Alaska, from planting vegetables and building snow forts, to learning Native songs from the village elders, to racing in a canoe competition.
