Good to Know Als Indianer einschlafen und in der Prärie erwachen... in Grächen erleben kleine Kinder und grossgewordene Kinder Abentuer im grandiosen Indianerfort auf der Hannigalp. Der Ferienort wird zum überdimensionalen Spielplatz, wenn der Animateur zeigt, wie man Pfeil und Bogen selber schnitzt. Wenn die Familie bei der Handy Safari den Schneevogel SiSU sucht und beim "Aero Jumpen" richtige Luftsprünge macht.
