Indigenous game designers, coders and artists will be in Santa Clara, California this week to talk about the future of the Native gaming industry. And many developers are looking to Alaska for inspiration. KBBI's Shady Grove Oliver talked with Cook Inlet Tribal Council president Gloria O'Neill about the game "Never Alone" CITC developed in collaboration with Inupiaq elders. And Juneau storyteller Ishmael Hope describes his hopes for video games that reflect Native cultures.
