As a medium for storytelling, video games offer incredible potential—and now an exciting new partnership is looking to harness that power to bring Alaska Native culture to screens around the world. Leading game developer E-Line Media and Alaska’s Cook Inlet Tribal Council are collaborating on Upper One Games, the first game company owned by an indigenous community in the U.S., to develop commercial video games that draw on a rich, centuries-old storytelling tradition. Upper One Games CEO Gloria O’Neill and E-Line Media President Alan Gershenfeld will offer an inside view at the opportunities and challenges of bringing a culture’s stories, and wisdom passed down through the generations, to an interactive digital format.

Co-presented by Games for Change
