In honour of our country’s 150th Anniversary and to celebrate the heritage of Indigenous peoples in Canada, Hinterland Who’s Who is releasing videos about some of our most iconic wildlife in six Indigenous languages. The species featured are important to Indigenous culture and present in many First Nation, Métis, or Inuit legends.

To view the videos about freshwater turtles and the Wolverine, please visit our Indigenous Languages page!

The first featured species is the North American Beaver! This large rodent is found throughout Canada's freshwater systems. Since it has played a prominent role throughout our history, it has become our national symbol!
