2017 TEDxYYC Speaker
This year, I was thrilled to be welcomed to the TED talk family as a speaker at the 2017 TEDxYYC in Calgary this past June 23, 2017. TEDx is a sharing of inspiring ideas that spark change in the community. The talk was about our story and of why it is important that Indigenous game developers develop games that teach about Indigenous culture, traditions, and perspectives. We shared the stage with brilliant hollywood actors and olympic hockey athletes during this amazing event!
