Episode 9 Synopsis
Dr. Rudy sends Jen and Jacob on unique information-gathering missions: Jen to observe sea otters and Jacob to snorkel in a sea kelp forest. Both are surprised to learn the integral role that these creatures and rich marine ecology played in shaping ancient coastal migration. Then with archaeologist Elroy White as their guide, the team gets to witness the power of Heiltsuk nuyems—oral stories passed down through the generations to Elroy about his territory, while visiting a traditional Big House, exploring an underground Potlatch site and finding stunning rock art and carvings!

Sea Otter Ecosystem
Mini Sunka Mini tan Makoce
The ecology of the Kelp Forest hinges on the sea otter. A vast and complex web forms when the sea otter controls the ravenous appetite of sea urchins, who love to eat kelp. Left to thrive, the kelp flourishes and an underwater forest explodes with countless marine life. The sea otter’s importance is matched only by its cuteness.

Framing Coastal Life

The traditional Heiltsuk Big House was the centre of the potlach, a focus for learning, living and sharing among Coastal Nations. Constructed with wooded pegs and without nails, the Big House embodies the majesty of the Pacific Rainforest with its massive cedar logs, powerful imagery and towering totems.
