"Indigenous Futurisms as Game Design," Elizabeth LaPensee, 2018
We are living in the post-apocalypse. We are also ongoing. Indigenous futurisms, a term coined by Anishinaabe scholar Grace L. Dillon, refers to Indigenous ways of knowing about past, present, and future. In this talk, Elizabeth LaPensée speaks to her work which resonates Indigenous scientific literacies and futurisms through game aesthetics and mechanics, offering insights into game design which honors the past and enacts self-determination in the present.
