An exhibition on the museum’s fourth floor provides context for the PBS Kids series "Molly of Denali," the first nationally distributed children’s series in the U.S. featuring an Alaska Native lead character.
Molly is a 10-year-old who lives in the fictional village of Oyah, Alaska. "The Culture of Media" presents brief historical overview of how Indigenous people have been represented in media throughout the 20th century, including introducing audiences to Athabascan cultures and the production process behind Molly.
