Episode 2 - Indigeneity in DH

9:00am - 10:00am

In Episode 2 of Recoding Relations we explore what Indigeneity means within the digital humanities. We listen to pieces by Jordan Abel, Michelle Nahanee, and Maize Longboat about their Indigeneity and how that manifests in the work they do. Jordan touches on his back story and how that inspired the creation of his book Injun; then we hear from Maize Longboat, who talks about the production of his video game. Maize is currently still in the process of developing that game, so we hear about that process and his inspiring factors. Finally, Michelle Nahanee shares her experience creating the game Sínulhkay and Ladders. Michelle closes by explaining the goals of her Decolonizing Activity Book.
