Kanien’ kehá:ka writer, director and voice actor Dega Lazare created this animated series with Indigenous owned production company Big Soul Prod. for APTN. Described as a classic “fish out of water” story about a Kanien’ kehá:ka family that moves from the big city back to the rez, By The Rapids was funny, insightful and full of heart. All four seasons were translated in to Kanien’kéha as well!
