Touching any of the icons on the MAIN MENU will result in a short video to be played on the main viewing screen. For example, if the user chooses the icon on the upper left - WHO WAS PAUL KANE? - the large screen will show a short video about Paul Kane’s background.

There are three videos in the INTRODUCTION section, one detailing Kane’s background, one investigating the controversy surrounding his work, and a final video outlining his vast travels.

The VIEWPOINTS section, contains an explanation of the myth of the “noble savage”. Additionally in this section, users can touch images of Jane Ash Poitras or Duane Good Striker to hear their divergent opinions on Paul Kane’s work and the concept of the "noble savage".

At the bottom of the main menu there are seven icons, which are pictures of Kane’s work or PAINTING STORIES. As users select one of these icons, the main menu changes to reveal a video and an interactive activity for each. Within each section users can choose to watch an introductory video, such as in “SKETCH ON LAKE HURON” or skip ahead to an activity that they can interact with. For example, in “REVEAL SKETCHES IN OIL PAINTING” the user can touch any of the sketches to see how they were amalgamated into the finished oil on canvas painting.
