|This session brings together three organizers of and one participant in a recent three-week Indigenous game-making workshop run in Hawaii called 'Skins 5.0' that taught game making with an emphasis on telling one's own stories. Each presenter shares a microtalk highlighting learnings from their particular workshop perspective. Attendees will leave with approaches for successfully running Indigenous game making workshops, including environmental, cultural, and practical factors to watch out for. They will also be presented with a design-based case for how cultural values are reified in game design, and examples of what "indigenized game play" can look like.
