Molly of Denali Celebrates Elizabeth Peratrovich Day
GBH Kids, producer of Molly of Denali, and Alaska Public Media have partnered together to host an event to celebrate Elizabeth Peratrovich Day on February 16, 2022. Elizabeth Peratrovich (Raven of the Lingít Lukaadx̱.ádi Clan) is an important figure in Alaska's history who helped pass the country’s first Anti-Discrimination Bill in 1945. Peratrovich’s story is told in the Molly of Denali episode Molly and Elizabeth, which will be shown during the event. Following the screening, members of the creative team behind the episode will discuss the episode and importance of Indigenous perspectives included in media representation.
This free, two-hour event will include games and activities for kids, as well as meet and greet opportunities with Molly. Join us from 5-7 p.m. at the Alaska Native Heritage Center (or via live stream if you cannot attend in person). Light refreshments will be served.
Gift bags will be available for the first 100 kids, on a first-come-first-serve basis. Molly Activity Packs will be given away as game raffle prizes. These apply to the live event only.
