During the show, viewers will learn new words and phrases with animated co-hosts Kalluk and Nuna. They will also spend time with Ms. Donna’s language class, see how traditional items are made, join the Inuvik Drummers and Dancers group, and hear stories from Gerry Kisoun about the Inuvialuit way of life.

ICS said they are "proud to be broadcasting this program on APTN North and looks forward to many more programs coming from the ISR in the years to come."
