Aboriginal video game puts modern twist on tradition of storytelling - CTV Montreal | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Using a modern twist to honour centuries-old traditions, a new video game  designed by young people from Kahnawake uses Mohawk legends as inspiration.


The product of a video game design workshop at Concordia Uiversity,  Skahiòn:hati: Rise of the Kanien'kehá:ka Legends, tells the story of a man who  must fight a Stone Giant, Tree People and the Flying Head on his path to  becoming a warrior.


Young people between the ages of 18 and 25 from Kahnawake spent a combined  total of 350 hours creating the game, which  can be downloaded here.


The focus was on a positive portrayal of their proud heritage."
