Overview: Classic stories have always been an essential part of how wisdom is passed from generation to generation. Indigenous societies often use traditional storytelling to share and celebrate core cultural values as well. There is a tremendous opportunity to delve deeply into the folklore of indigenous cultures to find stories that can be expressed in unique ways through video games so that they can be shared with global audiences. However, to authentically and accurately represent such stories and values, the development process must be handled in direct partnership with the indigenous people themselves.
