Flett-Wapash (Ininew and Saulteaux, of Keeseekoose First Nation, Saskatchewan) is an independent video game designer who works outside of the team workflow and industry models most commonly used in the milieu. His developing body of work is a digital rebuilding of his ongoing artistic examination of the Ininew world view – including cosmology, culture and language - using retro video game aesthetics.
McArthur (Nakota of Pheasant Rump Nakota First Nation, Saskatchewan) is a digital artist who works at the intersection of 3D animation, video game design and video. Her developing body of work is evocative of Indigenous Futurisms and seeks to situate her Indigenous culture within both the modern and a potential future vision.
